  1. Hey everyone I had a little rush of blood to the head earlier and I ordered the Brassin Tempest V Napier Sabre for the Eduard Tempest kit. So boyd by my Spitfire Mk.IXc (finished build) WIP I thought I'd get another WIP going in anticipation for when I get to start it. Box art.. And Napier Sabre... Cheers Iain
  2. Lockheed C-130 Wheels (672263 for Zvezda) 1:72 Eduard Brassin ` Kit wheels are generally in two halves, which means you have the resultant joins to deal with, possible mould-slip issues on single part wheels, and sometimes less than stellar detail due to the moulding limitations of styrene injection technology, especially in the tread department. That's where replacement resin wheels come in, with their lack of seamline and superior detail making a compelling argument. They are also usually available at a reasonable price, and can be an easy introduction to after
  3. Spitfire Mk.II Cockpit (648621 for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Brassin If you have one of Eduard’s new Spiotfire Mk.IIs in 1:48, this new resin set to upgrade the detail in the cockpit from excellent to exceptional. The set arrives in the familiar shallow black Brassin cardboard box, and inside, protected by the folded instructions are three bags of resin and Photo-Etch (PE) that make up the set, as well as the aforementioned instruction sheets. Within the bags are thirty-two resin parts, a sheet of nickel plated and pre-painted PE, a small decal
  4. AGM-62 Walleye II (648616) 1:48 Eduard Brassin The Walleye was an early guided bomb that was surprisingly successful given the analogue nature of the electronics and the relatively short gestation of the type. It was initially called a missile, but as it was unpowered that was somewhat disingenuous. It used television for guidance, requiring the pilot to designate a picture of the target on a screen in the cockpit, then after launch the aircraft could turn for home leaving the weapon to home in on the target unaided. It was first used with great success in Viet
  5. SC50 German WWII Bombs (632170) 1:32 Eduard Brassin Bombs. They’re thrown or dropped from the bomb bays or pylons of aircraft, and unless they’re dud or on a timer, they go bang when they hit the ground, generally making a mess of anything nearby. During WWII the Germans did a lot of bombing of the British Isles and other countries they didn’t like using their standard iron bombs with the nomenclature SC followed by the weight in Kilograms. The SC50 was one of the smaller bombs, sometimes carried by fighters or other aircraft that weren’t capable of lugging any
  6. AGM-84D Harpoon Missile (648619) 1:48 Eduard Brassin In the mid-60s, America watched in horror as a Soviet-made missile was used to sink an Israeli Destroyer in the Middle East, causing them to accelerate their Harpoon programme that would give them their own effective anti-ship missile. By 1977 the first Harpoon missiles were being delivered, and various different blocks saw the type develop its capabilities, with several thousand delivered to US and many allies over the years. The AGM-84D is a capable weapon that can be carried by ships, aircraft and even subm
  7. AGM-62 Walleye I Mk.I (648614) 1:48 Eduard Brassin The Walleye was an early guided bomb that was surprisingly successful given the analogue nature of the electronics and the relatively short gestation of the type. It was initially called a missile, but as it was unpowered that was somewhat disingenuous. It used television for guidance, requiring the pilot to designate a picture of the target on a screen in the cockpit, then after launch the aircraft could turn for home leaving the weapon to home in on the target unaided. It was first used with great success in
  8. SUU-23 Gun Pod (648612) 1:48 Eduard Brassin The SUU-23 was a further development of the SUU-16 gun pod, and has a GAU-4/A Vulcan gatling gun at its heart. It was a development in the 1960s to give the F-4 Phantom back its gun, having been left out of the design thanks to the power of the “missile mafia”, who convinced everyone that guns and dogfights were a thing of the past. Inside the aerodynamic fairing is the self-powered gun and an ammo tank to feed the gun up to 1,200 rounds, which sounds a lot, but given the rate of fire doesn’t last long. It wasn’t all
  9. Lysander Twin Browning Machine Gun (648584) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Eduard have reboxed the 1:48 Lysander kit from Gavia a few times over the years, and one of those times has been a pretty recent affair. They usually include some goodies in the ProfiPACK box, but there’s always a little more in the way of detail the modeller can add. This set contains a twin Browning mount for the rear gunner, and as usual with Eduard's smallest Brassin sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sa
  10. Spitfire Mk.II Gun Bays & Mk.IIb SPACE Cockpit (648611 & 3DL48007) 1:48 Eduard Brassin We reviewed Eduard’s new state-of-the-art new Mk.IIb kit recently here, and now we have a few interesting aftermarket sets in the shape of a resin set of gun bays for the wings, and a new style of cockpit set from Eduard called SPACE that comprises a mixture of new 3D printed decals and regular Photo-Etch (PE). I think we’re seeing the start of a trend here folks. Spitfire Mk.II Detail Set SPACE (3DL48007 for Eduard) This arrive in a flat reseala
  11. Messerschmitt Bf.110G Wheels & G-4 Exhaust Stacks (648603 & 648606 for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Eduard’s 1:48 Bf.110 kits have been with us for a few years now, and they have re-released them over the years with many variants of this well-known heavy fighter released in their boxes, the later G series being amongst them. These two new sets are just what the detail doctor ordered if you are in possession of any of the G kits for the wheels, or a G-4 for the exhaust stacks. As is now usual with Eduard's smallest resin sets, they arrive in a flat reseala
  12. Dornier Do.17Z Bomber Guns & Wheels (648608 & 648609 for ICM) 1:48 Eduard Brassin ICM have been busily flooding the market with variants of the Flying Pencil for a while now, and it’s a good thing as there is plenty of demand. They’re also detailed, modern kits and fill a void in my favourite scale. Eduard have even released their own special edition that uses ICM plastic, and have created these sets to upgrade the detail, regardless of whose box it is in. If you have a Do.17Z of any other brand, these two sets would probably fit too, although that’s fo
  13. P-38H Gun Barrels (648596 for Tamiya) 1:48 Eduard Brassin After the launch of Tamiya’s new P-38F Lightning in 1:48, a limited edition of the P-38H in a special box has arrived, drawing in more modellers to their excellent kit. Here comes the aftermarket! As usual with Eduard's smaller Brassin sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package similar to their PE sets but with different branding, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. This set contains barrels for the nose of your k
  14. BDU-33 & Mk.76 Bombs (648567) 1:48 Eduard Brassin BDU-33s and Mk.76s are practice bombs that can be dropped from a carrying aircraft’s ejector racks, and upon impact they emit a puff of smoke to aid spotting. One variant emits a flame in addition to the smoke, so that it can be spotted in the dark, while the other is a simple smoke charge for daylight only. They’re just over 2 feet long, so an aircraft can carry quite a few for practice bombing. The Mk.76 Practice Bombs are subtly different around the fins, and both types can be fitted with cylindrical oute
  15. F-6D Cockpit (648600 for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Eduard’s new Reconnaissance Mustang, the F-6D went under the microscope here, and now we have a finely detailed resin cockpit to augment the already impressive detail you’ll find in the kit. As is now usual with Eduard's larger resin sets, they arrive in the new deep Brassin cardboard box, with the resin parts safely cocooned in bags, a foam sheet in the bottom and the instructions folded around acting as padding. Inside the box are forty-three resin parts of various sizes, a fret of Photo-Et
  16. GBU-54 Non-Thermally Protected (648564) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Based upon the 500lb Mk.82 iron bomb, the GBU-54 is one of the smaller Joint Direct Attack Munitions, JDAM for short. It comprises a kit including steering fins at the rear, and a seeker head at the front, with a conduit linking them together along with a series of straps that fit around the bomb’s circumference. They are available in bare and thermally protected variants to protect them against heat, with the latter type usually used on carriers. This set includes resin parts f
  17. AN/ALE-41 Chaff Dispenser (648601) 1:48 Eduard Brassin This pod is the Naval version of the AN/ALE-38, and is a High-Capacity Bulk Chaff Dispenser, originally manufactured by Marconi and latterly by BAe Systems. It dumps chaff into the slipstream of the carrying aircraft in an attempt to confuse and distract any chasing missile that relies on radar to home in on their target. They’re usually used in conjunction with flare dispensers to cover both spectrums likely to be used by an incoming threat. As is now usual with Eduard's smaller res
  18. SUU-25 Flare Dispenser (648561) 1:48 Eduard Brassin The SUU-25 is a modern flare dispenser pod made by Arnold Defence that holds eight flares, double-stacked in four tubes for either target marking, or for illuminating areas/targets. Eduard's smaller Brassin sets share the same packaging as the PE sets, arriving in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. It’s a simple set with only three resin parts on two casting blocks. The pod is cast with the pour
  19. RS-2U Missile (648593) 1:48 Eduard Brassin The Kaliningrad K-5 or AA-1 Alkali if you follow the NATO codes, was an early Soviet guided missile that began development in the early 1950s and reached service as the RS-2U with Soviet fighters and interceptors in '57. It wasn’t particularly effective due to its guidance method, but still lingered in service well into the '70s, mainly due to the aircraft it was designed for having the same fate. It was supplanted by the more capable R-55 that eschewed the beam-riding targeting for semi-active radar, then by the AA-2 A
  20. US 1000lb Bombs (648565) 1:48 Eduard Brassin During WWII, American bombers used a variety of sizes of free-fall bombs, depending on the task in hand and the capabilities of the carrying aircraft. On the larger side was the M65 General Purpose bomb, which was suitable for larger targets, and had a large spinner at the rear that armed the fuse as it fell away from the aircraft, in order to reduce the chances of accidental detonation beforehand. The impeller is protected within a boxed-in fin unit on a long shaft that enters the bomb casing from the rear, passing t
  21. GBU-54 Thermally Protected Bombs (648598) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Based upon the 500lb Mk.82 iron bomb, the GBU-54 is one of the smaller Joint Direct Attack Munitions, JDAM for short. It comprises a kit that includes steering fins at the rear, and a seeker head at the front, with a conduit linking them together along with a series of straps that went around the bomb’s circumference. They are available in bare and thermally protected variants to protect them against intense heat, primarily in the event of a fire on a carrier, delaying the likelihood of “cook off” det
  22. SUU-30B Early (648558) 1:48 Eduard Brassin The SUU-30B was an early cluster bomb, containing up to 665 BLU-24 or -26 tennis ball-sized bomblets for area denial and anti-personnel warfare, as well as destruction of unarmoured materiel if it happens to be in range. It can be carried on a pylon for a “dumb” iron bomb, and once released the canister opens and disperses the bombs over the area, some exploding immediately, others on timers to extend the area denial and increase enemy casualties amongst the repair crews. This and the dud bomblets were one of the causes
  23. ALARM Missiles, GBU-31(V)1B JDAM, SUU-30A/B Early 1:48 Eduard Brassin Eduard’s range of resin weapons expands monthly, with this tranche containing three of various types. Each one arrives in the new slimline Brassin cardboard box, with the accompanying reduction in packaging, using the poly bags to protect the resin and Photo-Etch (PE) parts along with the instructions wrapped around them and the decals. The instructions contain painting guide drawings and colour callouts in Gunze colours, as is standard for them. ALARM Missiles (648549)
  24. F-14D Exhaust Nozzles (648560 for Tamiya) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Tamiya's überkit of the mighty and much-loved F-14D Tomcat is superb, and Eduard have been bringing out lots of sets, with this Brassin set following up to further enhance the detail in the rear, where injection moulding can't offer the level of detail and finesse that resin can. Especially Eduard resin, which is amongst the best quality currently available. The set arrives in the usual black box for larger castings, and under the layers of protective foam and the instructions, you will find two ziplo
  25. Tiger Moth Upgrades (for Airfix) 1:48 Eduard & Eduard Brassin Airfix’s new kid on the block is the diminutive trainer, the Tiger Moth, new in 1:48 and reaching the shops round about now and selling well according to Airfix. Upgrade Set (491073) Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass. A complete set of new layered instrument panels and two sets of seatbelts for each pilot on the painted set, cockpit floor skin with seat framework, as well as a new seat for the rear cockpit internal structure a
