  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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)
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Lancaster Wheels (632144 for HKM) 1:32 Eduard Brassin Hong Kong Models’ 1:32 Lancaster has received a little more love recently as those that were looking out for the much-vaunted WNW kit are perhaps realising that a bird in the hand is definitely worth two that might never even reach the bush (terrible analogy, I know). This set of resin replacement wheels arrives from Eduard in their new cardboard box, needing a large one to accommodate the rather large tyres that the Lanc wore so it could operate from a grass field if the need arose. Inside the box are three
  19. B-24 Wheel (632145 & 632149 for Hobby Boss) 1:32 Eduard Brassin Hobby Boss’s big-scale B-24 is a massive kit, and with massive kits come massive wheels with massive seams round them. Not any more! Eduard have created two sets of replacement resin wheels for the Big Liberator, substituting those annoying seams for a small contact patch pour stub and some exceptional detail. There are two sets as mentioned, one in a thin Brassin cardboard box, the other in a fat one for no reason that I can divine, but not to worry – it’s all recyclable and a lot better for t
  20. B-17G Update Sets (for HKM) 1:48 Eduard & Eduard Brassin HKM gave us all a little surprise last year with a scale-down of their 1:32 kit, much to the excitement of anyone that has a soft spot for the Flying Fortress, like me. We reviewed the first tranche of sets early this year here, and now Eduard are ready with their second tranche, which also includes a selection of resin sets. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are san
  21. A-26B/B-26 Invader Upgrade Sets (for ICM) 1:48 Eduard & Eduard Brassin We’ve been blessed with a LOT of new A-26 and B-26 kits from ICM in 1:48, and if their past performance is any gauge, we’ll be getting a bunch more variants before they’re done. This group of sets helps to increase the detail further than the kit allows, with Eduard’s usual modular approach so that you can get the parts that appeal to you, or go crazy and buy them all for the ultimate detail-fest. As standard with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable pa
  22. Heinkel 111 Wheels Early & Late (648542 & 648543) 1:48 Eduard Brassin We’re all probably well-aware of ICM’s recent range of He.111 kits, which is growing by the month and even contains a Zwilling, much to my own surprise and delight. Eduard have been releasing a number of sets to up the detail, with these two wheel sets the latest from the Brassin line. As is now usual with Eduard's smaller Brassin sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Each set
  23. F-14D Upgrade Sets (for AMK) 1:48 Eduard Brassin After much delay the AMK F-14D was released (reviewed here), and here we have some rather nice detail and upgrade sets to go with it from Eduard, who have a long history of first rate resin and Photo-Etch (PE) sets for those hungry for more detail in their models. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE), small resin and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. The larger set arrives in the new shallow Bra
  24. P-51D 110gal & 165gal Fuel Tanks (648531 & 648532) 1:48 Eduard Brassin Mustangs used a few types of drop tanks when they were accompanying the bombers or ranging far and wide during the latter stages of WWII, and although some were made of compressed paper, others were stamped metal. We’ve got two highly detailed resin sets here. As is now usual with Eduard's smaller resin sets, they arrive in the new shallow Brassin cardboard box, with the resin parts safely cocooned in bags, and the instructions folded around acting as padding. P-51D
  25. Hey everyone Since my Tamiya Spitfire is coming to an end I decided to have a look through my stash to see what I could build next and at the bottom of the pile I spied an Eduard 1/48 Spitfire with quite a lot of AM, these being the Brassin engine, gun bay and brass undercarriage legs I don’t have the Brassin cockpit for this kit as I really don’t think it adds very much to it and its more than adequate straight out of the box and because I have the Profipack version (8282) you get photoetch for the cockpit included. Since I’ve been looking at period photographs I have a hankering
