FirstLook

 

Eduard has expanded their range of accessories to include two more resin updates for the recent HK Models B-25J Mitchell.

648863 - B-25J Wheels for the HKM kit

 

 

Eduard has released a set of wheels for HK Models' 1/48 scale B-25J Mitchell.

Inside the resealable plastic bag are four parts in light grey resin, two photo-etched parts plus a masking sheet and instructions.

 

 

The grey resin parts have crisp detail cast in place.

The main wheels feature subtle flattening and bulging.

 

 

The tyres are cast with separate hub faces on one side and a diamond tread pattern with raised sidewall lettering.

 

 

Casting blocks will best be tackled with a razor saw.

Optional photo-etched wheel covers are included.

 

 

Instructions are supplied on a single folded paper sheet.


 

648871 - B-25J Bombsight PRINT for the HKM kit

 

 

Eduard has released a Norden bombsight set for the HKM 1/48 scale B-25J Mitchell. You should be able to adapt these to the older Revell-Monogram Mitchell kits and other US WWII bombers too.

 

 

The set supplies a beautifully detailed one-piece Norden bombsight.

The 3D printed part is packed in a small strong clear plastic case.

 

 

The bombsight is subtly detailed with all the elements printed in place

 

 

Eduard's gunsight represents a big improvement over the kit parts.

At USD$3.95 it is a bargain too!

 

 

Conclusion

 

These sets are simple but effective upgrades for HK Models' very nice 1/48 scale B-25J Mitchell.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
