Eduard Photo Etch Sets for IJN Ships May 2012 Update
IJN Carrier Aircraft
This handy fret of photo etch parts is the latest in Eduards growing range of non-vessel specific detail sets. It contains propellers and undercarriage parts for the following aircraft:
Aichi B7A Grace torpedo bomber;
Yokosuka D4Y Judy diver bomber;
Nakajima B6N Jill torpedo bomber;
Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter; and
Nakajima C6N Myrt reconnaissance aircraft.
There are plenty of parts on the fret enough for a couple of aircraft carrier kits at least. In my experience, photo etch detail parts are almost mandatory if you want to add the wow factor to your naval models. This set is no exception.
Another utility set for Imperial Japanese Navy vessels, this one contains a whole host of anchors and chains for large and medium sized vessels. On the single fret are 18 large anchors and 10 lengths of large anchor chain, 20 small anchors and 12 lengths of small anchor chain, 8 Large anchors with chain attached and 6 smaller anchors with chain attached. The photo etch chain is superb, and will certainly knock the socks off of any injection moulded version. Conclusion
This is another useful pair of sets from Eduard, who are spoiling modellers of 1:700 subjects at the moment. Quality is up to the usual high Eduard standard, and so they can be highly recommended.
