Eduard has wasted no time producing a range of accessories for the new Zvezda 1/48 scale Il-2.
Tonight I review what I think are the two most useful of this new batch.
FE1145 - Eduard Zoom Il-2 for Zvezda Kit. USD$14.95
Even the entry-level Zoom series offers super detail with one colour photo-etched fret providing detail focused on the cockpit.
Specifically, the set includes a new multi-part coloured instrument panel, side consoles, ring and bead gunsights, swithces, knobs and more.
In my opinion this represent good value.
This is a compact but noticeable update to the new Zvezda 1/48 scale Il-2.
EX749 Masks Il-2 for the Zvezda kit. USD$10.95
Die-cut, self-adhesive masks for the canopy and wheels.
These represent a fast and accurate solution for a time consuming and often disliked modelling task.
I assume that the distorted images on the instructions are a new security measure to prevent people from simply photo-copying a downloaded copy of the diagrams onto tape.
The use of the Zoom photo-etched fret will result in a noticeably better detailed Il-2 cockpit.
The masks will save you a lot of time and add sharp precision to the clear parts too!
These are very useful upgrades for your new Zvezda 1/48 scale Il-2.
Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
