FirstLook

 

Here are two of Eduard's latest releases in their range of accessories for their own recent 1/48 scale Fw 190 D-11/13 kit. These will be useful for anyone building the Overtrees or Weekend Edition versions of the kits (Overtrees are low-price plastic sprues in a white box without instructions, masks or photo-etch), or if you just want a different look from the photo-etched parts in the ProfiPACK kit:

3DL48035 - Fw 190 D-11/13 SPACE. USD$12.71

 

 

This SPACE set comprises 3D printed decals for the instrument panel, side consoles, canopy crank and structural details.

The 3D parts have well defined raised switches, bezels and other details as well as crisp printing.

 

 

The photo-etched offers half-tone harness straps, rudder pedals plus other small details. 

 

 

Detailed instructions are included.

I have used a SPACE sets a couple of times recently and I have been very pleased with the results. 

I found that the 3D decals barely needed to be wet at all before they would slide - or sometimes fall - off the backing sheet. I used Gator’s Grip acrylic glue to secure the 3D printed decals to the plastic kit parts.

 

 

Detailed instructions are included. 

 

 

For what you get, I think USD$12.71 represents great value.


 

EX800 - Fw 190 D-11/13 TFace. USD$12.71

These are die-cut, self-adhesive inside and outside masks for the windscreen and canopy.

Instructions are provided.

These represent a fast and accurate solution for a time consuming and often disliked modelling task.

 

 

Conclusion

 

Installing the SPACE set will result in a different look for the cockpit for your Eduard Dora - the choice is yours!

The TFace masks will be useful if you want to mask up the framing inside the canopy too.

Both of these updates will be particularly useful for the Overtrees Edition that doesn't come with photo-etched parts or masks.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
