PV-1 Ventura Roundup
Eduard ZOOM Photo-Etch, Seat Belts & Masks for Academy's 1/48 scale kit
Eduard has released several new accessories and updates for the new IBG Fw 190 D-9 kits:
FE1348 - PV-1 Ventura ZOOM for Academy kit. USD$14.95
This is Eduard's ZOOM photo-etched fret for the Academy 1/48 scale PV-1 Ventura cockpit, comprising one pre-coloured fret.
This set will also be suitable for the Revell kit (the Academy kit is a Revell re-boxing).
This contains detail parts for the cockpit.
The colour fret supplies instrument panel, consoles, throttles, floor and smaller details.
Instructions are included.
FE1349 - PV-1 Ventura Seat Belts for Academy kit. USD$10.95
This new photo-etched fret supplies a full photo-etched harness for the seats in Academy and Revell's 1/48 scale PV-1 Ventura kits. One full harness and one lap harness are included.
Details are picked out with stitching and hardware printed directly onto the photo-etched straps and mounts.
The half-tone rendering of shadows is also very well done.
This harness set will be the ideal accompaniment to the Zoom cockpit detail set reviewed above.
EX945 - PV-1 TFace Mask for Academy kit. USD$19.95
These are die-cut, self-adhesive imasks for the outside of the Academy 1/48 scale PV-1 Ventura.
Eduard's TFace Masks cover the inside and outside of the model's canopy and other clear parts.
Included in this set are masks for the windscreen, windows and wheels.
Instructions are provided.
These represent a fast and accurate solution for a time consuming and often disliked modelling task.
The ZOOM photo-etched set will add an extra dimension of detail to the cockpit of your Academy or Revell 1/48 scale PV-1 Ventura economically and with a minimum of effort.
The masks will make short work of an often disliked task
Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
