Contents and Media:

3D printed and photo-etched parts

Review Type: FirstLook
Advantages: High level of detail that will result in a well detailed Beaufort interior; plenty of choice available according to the modeller's individual preference.
Disadvantages:  
Recommendation:

This SPACE set offers an alternative to the plastic parts as supplied in theICM kits. It will result in a well-detailed cockpit in ICM's 1/48 scale Beaufort kits. The mask set will take the pain away from a time consuming and often unliked modelling task, especially masking the intricate glasshouse canopy frames of the Beaufort.

FirstLook

 

Eduard has expanded their range of accessories with a multimedia SPACE upgrade set for ICM's Bristol Beaufort Mk.I kit. This will also be suitable for the ICM Beaufort Mk.I kit.

 

3DL48094 - Beaufort Mk.I SPACE for the ICM kits

This SPACE set comprises 3D printed decals for the instrument panel, radio faces and placards, plus photo-etched parts for the half-tone harness straps and throttles.

 

 

I used a couple of SPACE sets last year and I was 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.


 

Item No. EX908 - Beaufort Mk.I MASK for the ICM kits

These are die-cut, self-adhesive imasks for the canopy, turret, windows and wheels of the recent ICM 1/48 scale Bristol Beaufort Mk.I and Mk.IA kits.

 

 

Masks are included for the early and late-style windscreens.

Full instructions are provided.

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

 

 

Conclusion

 

This SPACE set offers an alternative to the plastic parts as supplied in theICM kits. It will result in a well-detailed cockpit in ICM's 1/48 scale Beaufort kits.

The mask set will take the pain away from a time consuming and often unliked modelling task, especially masking the intricate glasshouse canopy frames of the Beaufort.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
