FirstLook

 

Eduard has released a new early-style radar nose or for Kinetic's lovely 1/48 scale F-16 family. The instructions do not specify versions and Block Numbers for this early style, so check your references. BTW, a late-style radar nose is also available from Eduard.

 

 

The set is made up from five parts in 3D printed resin and one brass-plated photo-etched part.

The nose part is detailed inside and out.

 

 

Kinetic's radar is well done but this 3D printed replacement is a noticeable improvement.

The new nose and radar is a complete replacement.

 

 

Detail is crisp and impressive.

Cleanup of the 3D printed parts should be fast and straightforward using a razor saw, pair of nippers, a sharp hobby blade and a sanding stick.

 

 

Illustrated instructions are supplied on one folded paper sheet.

 

 

Conclusion

 

This highly detailed radar and housing will be a valuable update for your Kinetic 1/48 scale F-16 kit.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples.
