Bf 109G-4 Cockpit Set (648340)

1:48 Eduard Brassin

Eduard are slowly working their way through all the Bf 109 variants in 1:48 and they are great kits. However there is only so much injected plastic can do, their cockpit sets bring a whole new level of detail for the modeller. This set includes twenty pieces of grey resin, four of clear, two sheets of Photo-Etch (PE) brass, one of which is pre-painted and nickel-plated, plus a small acetate sheet.  The instruction booklet covers six sides of A5 on both sides, and is printed in colour to assist you in placement of parts.

The set gives you a complete new cockpit including sides and floor which will fit into the model with some work being needed on the kit moulded details. A mix of resin and PE goes into this to create a small model in itself. There is the option of using a one art instrument panel, or a multi par one using the PE & film supplied. Though lets be honest if you are going to the time, trouble, and expense of this set then it really has to be the multi part affair.

Conclusion

The kit cockpit is good enough, but this resin replacement is just so much better in terms of crisply moulded detail that it has to be worthy of consideration for the detail hungry modeller. 

 

Very highly recommended.
