FirstLook


Eduard continues its prolific release schedule with a number of recent releases in all scales from 1/144 to 1/24.

We have a selection of April's 1/48 and 1/72 scale releases here for examination. All the detail sets are supplied in colour pre-painted or unpainted photo-etched metal.

The colour frets in all these releases are self-adhesive. This will eliminate the risk of obscuring detail on tiny parts by smearing them with glue. The self-adhesive parts will require careful handling to maintain the effectiveness of the glue, and precise placement too.

The self-adhesive parts are packed on a protective backing sheet.
