  1. Finally I can post this build. The Eduard Ltd Edition Harrier GR 7 using the Hasegawa moulds and a spot of Eduard magic makes this kit one of my all time favourites: and I am honoured the build made it into November's issue of Airfix Model World. Here are a few more pics that didn't make it into the publication..
  2. Hi everyone Once my 1/72 Airfix DC3 Dakota Mk IV is finished I'll be making a start on a 1/32 Tamiya Spitfire Mk IXc. I've built the Mk XIV flavoured version of the phenomenal Tamiya Spitfire and after seeing Navy Bird's build here on this very site I've decided to bump it up on my to build list. My Spitfire Mk XIV finished as WX*V, TD240, 302 Polish Sqn, Germany 1945. For this build I will be using the resin goodies from available from Barracudacast.. I'll also utilise some bits and bobs from the Eduard Spitfire Mk IX early interior.. the Sutton QS Harness will be made up from the items available from RB productions.. The IP will be made up from elements of the products available from Airscale.. I'll add the missing rocker cover logos from some etch items from Iconicair.. For references I have the Wings and Wheels Publications Spitfire LF.Mk IX in detail.. and I also have access to the rather splendid resource Spitfire Mk IX & XVI engineered by Paul H Monforton available from Monforton press I intend to finish her as EN286, flown by Lt Eric Robinson, 1 Sqn RAAF, Luqa, Malta, June 1943 and for this I'll use the super mask set K32271 produced by Montex. Well I think that's everything! Cheers everyone Iain
  3. I found this aircraft listed as a future release for October on the Hannants website, and I´m wondering if it´s going to be a reboxing of the Eduard Bf 109F-2. The price is really tempting too. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/RV3893
  4. Hi all, This is my first wip I've done for a long time. Has a few on here know I've spent the last 10-15 years caring for both parents so time for modelling and posting pics up has been hard to come by. Unfortunately my Mum passed away suddenly and totally unexpected last August, something I'm still having trouble coming to terms with. Dad has not long passed away, after developing Pneumonia whilst in hospital, 6 months after Mum went. To say those 6 months have been very trying time is a under statement! I will say modelling has been a great help in getting me through the dark times, not forgetting looking in on here of coarse. Anyway enough of the waffle and onto the build! As soon as Airfix announced they were releasing a Sea Fury I knew I was going to have to build one, originally I was going to build it as a Iraqi one as I remember the one based at Duxford in those colours being taken by the scruff of the neck and flung round the sky, however as one is already being built on here I didn't want to bore folk with yet another so I've decided to do mine as a Cuban one see here, http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235034521-cuban-sea-furies/ First job was to sort out some known problems with the kit whilst I waited for my replacement starboard fuselage half. So cowl first up the engine cowl Nice gap! Ali hadn't released his resin cowl when i'd started my kit. So I filled the gaps up on both sides of the cowl with CA/talc. Using what i'd found out after looking in on Ali's site I re scribed the joint line in the correct position using this scriber and tape. Got to say that scriber is the best I've used to date. Then using my verlinden scribing template I redid the latches on the cowl. Just got to tidy things up a bit now. Also on my kit the port wing fold was short shot so instead of waiting for Airfix to send out yet another replacement part I decided to fix the problem myself. Used plasticard for the said fault. The end result. Will most likely require a bit more fettling after a coat of primer. Can anyone explain to me why my pics are so big and how to shrink them down please. Cheers, Tim.
  5. Fairey Firefly Mk.1 detail sets Eduard 1:48 Eduard don’t seem to mind if the kit they are releasing sets for isn’t, shall we say, the best out there, as such. they have released four etched sets and a set of masks. The etched parts are for the interior, seatbelts, exterior and a smaller zoom set for the cockpit. At least the modeller can’t say they don’t have a choice of what to use on his model, or how much they want to add. Interior Set (49-913) This set contains three sheets of PE, one is unpainted and is of etched brass, the other two are of the etched steel variety and both are pre painted, one for each cockpit. Neither is particularly large, but there is plenty of parts, particularly on the first, and larger of the sheet. The pilots cockpit is provided with a new instrument panel with a backing plate that has the instrument sprinted on it, compass and a host of switches and levers. The cockpit floor is fitted with new footplates, having removed the spurious kit floor details. There is also replacement bracing for the rear bulkhead and sidewalls, which also receive a multitude of electrical boxes, frame work, and brackets. The starboard side additionally receives a new throttle quadrant, trim wheels, and what looks like a pistol case. The rear cockpit also gets plenty of new detail, in the form of new electrical and radio boxes, their support frames, a new shelf with additional electrical boxes, which are also provided for the port sidewall and port side canopy. Exterior set (48-959) Whilst not the largest single sheet set, its contents do cover some interesting areas. Namely the main undercarriage bays, with new sides and roof where the leg and actuator reside, plus new roof and accurate details for where the wheel sits, (which will require some very careful rolling to get to the correct shape). The side mounted oil cooler intakes are fitted with new grilles, while the main radiator intake is fitted with a new back plate and outlet door. The instructions also show where the intake needs to be modified to make it more accurate in shape, at least for the interior. The sheet also contains a full set of undercarriage bay doors with their respective strengthening ribs and brackets. Interior Zoom Set (FE913) This zoom set contains only the pre-painted sheet for the front cockpit and seems a bit of strange release as it is lacking all the detail needed in the rear cockpit, so should have at least contained both the pre-painted sets, to be honest. Seatbelts (FE914) This small single sheet set contains a complete and comprehensive set of seat belts, buckles and clasps for both cockpits. The belts look to be quite simplified when compared with previous sets, but will look great when fitted. The seat belts are pre-painted so no need for some fiddly painting, just a slightly darker wash to tone them down a bit. Masks (EX607) Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for both the front and rear canopies and windscreen, with compound curved handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or off-cuts from the background tape. In addition you get a number of masks for the main wheels, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort. Conclusion There is a saying that you can’t polish something nasty, but at Eduard they do give it a good try. While the kit isn’t the most accurate of the Firefly, people will still buy it and some of them will want to add more detail to it. Therefore these sets are just for them. They will certainly Improve the look of the final build, and the masks will be particularly useful for that rear canopy with all of it’s panes. Review sample courtesy of
  6. Spitfire Mk.IX wheel sets for Tamiya Eduard 1:32 The Tamiya 1:32 Spitfire Mk.IX is a beautiful kit throughout, but there are always ways of improving even a Tamiya uber kit, or at least that’s how Eduard think. These two sets provide the modeller the option for fitting different styles of tyres to their model. Both sets include a full set of wheel, including the tail wheel, which is a one for one replacement. The main wheels are split into three parts, the wheel and tyre, plus the inner and outer hubs, the inners having well produced brake detail. They also both feature the five spoke pattern wheels, the differences are the tyres themselves. Set 632 127 features smooth tyres, while set 632-128 features a treaded pattern tyre. All the parts are very nicely moulded, with correctly spelt sidewall deatil and are easily removed from the moulding blocks due to the thin webs holding them to said block. A quick clean up after removal and you’re ready to glue the hubs in place, paint and glue to the kit undercarriage legs and your work is done. For ease of painting the sets also come with a sheet of masks to help give that clean paint job. Smooth Tyres 632-127 Pattern Tyres 632-128 Conclusion As with any modelling it is best to check your references and build your Spitfire accordingly. With these sets you now have the option of building your model with the correct tyres if the ones in the kit aren’t suitable. The masks are a very handy addition to the sets, just to make life that little bit easier. Review sample courtesy of
  7. USS Saratoga Big Ed Set Eduard 1:350 The Trumpeter 1:350 USS Saratoga has been out for a fairly long time now, in fact it was first released in 2005. So it seems rather strange that Eduard has only just decided to release some etched sets for it. This being the BigEd set, it comes in a stiff cardboard sleeve pack. Inside there are three sheets of relief etched brass and a set of flags in etched steel, each in their own separate packs. The set is up to the usual standard set by Eduard and as such is full of very small parts, where a good pick-up pencil wouldn’t go amiss. Some of the kit parts need to be modified or removed by the modeller before the etched parts can be fitted. Sheet 1, (53-216) This sheet contains parts for the island and funnel, and includes new skins as well as complete replacement parts for the various decks and island sections. The new platforms and mast mounted control position. All the platforms are provided with quite complex support structures and/or individual braces. The rear of the bridge deck is fitted with replacement flag lockers and supports, while the mast receives new yardarms, and what looks like an anemometer arm. The funnel is fitted out with new vertical ladders, walkways, inclined ladders, funnel inserts and caps. The superstructures for and aft of the funnel are replaced with PE parts and yet more support structures. All the decks for the bridge and funnel sections are provided with railings. Sheet 2, (53-217) This sheet contains parts which are used mainly to enhance the four 8” gun-houses. Each turret receives new front plate, access doors, access platforms, vertical ladders, sight boxes, roof railings and numerous other parts that I cannot identify without having the kit instructions in front of me. There is a new rangefinder/main armament director, saluting guns, and railings. The 5” guns are provided with ne trunnion mounts, railings, mounting plates, elevation hand wheels, traversing hand wheels, crew seats, elevation arc and sights. The mountings are also provided with ready use lockers for each position as well as access ladders to the flight deck. The ships crane is fitted with a completely new jib, cable wheels, cables, hook, and weather vane. Lastly the boat deck along the starboard side of the island is provided with new railings, davits, and cable reels, Sheet 3, (53-218) This sheet contains what looks like a lot of parts, but they are mostly for the ships railings and deck edge netting. All the moulded netting needs to be removed first, and the areas cleaned up in preparation for the etched parts to be glued into position. The railings are for all the weather deck openings, gun positions and catwalks. There are also a few railings that are fitted at flightdeck level when not at flying stations, including one just forward of the round-down at the stern and on the very bow section of the flightdeck. There are also a few platforms and inclined ladders that allow the crew to vacate the flightdeck and enter the hull on 2 deck through a side mounted watertight door. The rest of the sheet is dedicated to details for the ships boats. The four standard motor boats are fitted with replacement engine covers, new thwarts and gunwhales, new gratings, rear mounted railings, rudder and propeller, these boats are then mounted on new etched cradles. The smaller motor boats are also fitted with new gunwhales, rudder, complete with tiller and new propeller. They are the hung on replacement davits which are also fitted with new eye clamps which affix to the hull. Lastly there are three pinnaces, and these are detailed with the addition of new railings fore and aft, rudder, skeg, propeller and hatch. These boats are also provided with new cradles for them to sit on. (53209) US Ensigns WWII – Another single sheet with three very large pre-painted US Ensigns, so large in fact I had to check they weren’t 1:200 scale. Probably to be used on Battleships, Fleet Carriers and perhaps Large Cruisers. Conclusion You either love or hate brass etched detail sets, but for me they are almost vital, if you wish to produce as detailed a model as possible. Eduard are pretty much the kings of mainstream maritime etch at the moment and their release schedule seems inexhaustible, even though they seem rather late to the parade with this, big set for the old Saratoga. This set will certainly give the old kit a new lease of life with some great looking details. If you have the kit lounging around in your stash, get it out and start building, as the etched parts will make a great addition to your build.
  8. Russian T-34/76 for Academy 1:35 Eduard Eduard are really churning out the etched detail sets, trying to keep up with the number of releases that the various manufacturers are putting out, plus issuing sets for older kits. This set is for the Academy 1:35 T-34/76 Russian medium tank. The relief etched sheets are up to the usual standards as Eduard seem to have good quality control on their releases. Coming in the usual sleeve packaging with card inserts to protect the brass there is one set for the exterior and one for the interior. [36395] This set is contained on one medium sized sheet of brass. Apart from the usual brackets and clamps that most of these sets include, particularly for the pioneer tools there are also upper suspension plates, grab handles, complete replacement horn and hatch fittings. The front and rear mudguards are also completely replaced, and will require some careful folding and rolling to get the shapes right. The engine intake and exhaust grilles are replaced, along with their attachment frames. The stowage boxes are fitted with replacement lids, hinges and carrying handles. There is also a new armoured plate that covers the top of the manlet. Conclusion Even Academys T-34 can do with some extra detailing, and this set provides enough to make the difference without going overboard. It’s not a huge set, and with care and patience the parts should be ok to be used by all but the pure novice but still be slightly challenging in areas.
  9. Eduard is to release a 1/72nd Šimůnek VBŠ-1 Kuňkadlo kit - ref. Source: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1155387-eduard-70xxy-sim-nek-vbs-1-ku-kadlo V.P.
  10. Morning all So I have ended up with 3 kits on the go at once, not planned this way just happened. I started with the Airfix ME262 for which I also have the Eduard etch set, started out promisingly but the more I have done the less enjoyable this one has become for several reasons, firstly the kit fit has not been up to the recent new tool standards, wings halves not mating correctly, wing to body and engine to wing fit... well I'm still working on that. As you can see from the pictures this one has taken more filler so far than the last 3 kits put together! IMGA0209 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0211 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0210 by neil Connor, on Flickr Because the Airfix kit was starting to get under my skin I started the Eduard Spitfire mk9, this is a Profipack so no after market needed but I picked up some Techmod decals for Israeli and Egyptian aircraft, this is a fantastic kit, extremely detailed and overly complicated. IMGA0207 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0212 by neil Connor, on Flickr This one although going together nicely, does not lend itself for a quick build so I started a third kit. This being Revell P47 Thunderbolt 2013 rebox from 1990's moulds from what I can work out, So far I have spent maybe 60 minutes on this one so far and have been surprised how good the fit and detail is for such an old kit. Better than the new tool ME262? we'll see as I get further into it. IMGA0208 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0213 by neil Connor, on Flickr The only disappointment so far is the box art shows the aircraft with bombs and centre line fuel tank but the kit has 10 rocket and P38 fuel tanks on the wings, I may have to find replacements.
  11. Dear fellow Britmodellers, here's my 1/72 Eduard Spitfire IXe, built from the 'Royal Class' box that contains masks, photo-etch parts and resin wheels. I chose decal option 'K' for the aircraft of Jean-Marie Accart, CO of 345. Squadron, based at Deanland/East Sussex in September 1944. The model was painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with artist's oils. All photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thanks for your interest, best greetings from Vienna!
  12. F/A-18B/D Super Hornet Upgrade Sets (for Kinetic) 1:48 Eduard Kinetic have a new F-18, and you can build it as either the single seat B or two-seat D. It is known. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner. Get what you want for the areas (and number of seats) you want to be more of a focal point. 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 sandwiched between. Interior F/A-18B (49915) Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass. A complete set of new layered instrument panels and side consoles are the primary parts on the painted set, with new rudder pedals; ejection seat details; coaming instrumentation including HUD and canopy internal structure and rear-view mirrors also supplied. F/A-18B Zoom! Set (FE915) This set contains a reduced subset of the interior, namely the pre-painted parts that are used to improve on the main aspects of the cockpit, as seen above. Whatever your motivations for wanting this set, it provides a welcome boost to detail, without being concerned with the structural elements. Interior F/A-18D (49916) Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass. A complete set of new layered instrument panels and side consoles for the two seats are again the primary parts on the painted set, with new rudder pedals; ejection seat details; coaming instrumentation and longer canopy internal structure also supplied, although the two sets are identical in all but name. F/A-18B Zoom! Set (FE916) This set contains a reduced subset of the interior, namely the pre-painted parts that are used to improve on the main aspects of the cockpit, as seen above. Whatever your motivations for wanting this set, it provides a welcome boost to detail, without being concerned with the structural elements. Am I repeating myself again, again? F/A-18B/D Exterior (48960) This larger bare brass set contains some important detail upgrades, such as numerous vents and grilles on the fuselage and around the engines; slime-lights for the tail, fuselage and wingtips; a new door and support structure for the refuelling probe; replacement crew ladder detail; intake splitter plate skins & supports; a detail update to the twin main gear bays and shoulder mounted launch rails; nose gear bay skins and detail upgrade, some of which require the simplified kit details to be removed first. F/A-18B/D Seatbelts STEEL (FE917) In case you don't already know, these belts are Photo-Etch (PE) steel, and because of their strength they can be etched from thinner material, which improves realism and flexibility in one sitting. Coupled with the new painting method that adds perceived extra depth to the buckles and other furniture by shading, they are more realistic looking and will drape better than regular brass PE. As well as the two sets of crew belts (for one D, or potentially 2 x B), you also get a set of leg restraints that pull tight on initiation and help prevent flail-injuries in case of an ejection. F/A-18B/D Masks (EX604) Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, with compound curved handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or offcuts from the background tape. F/A-18B/D Masks Tface (EX606) Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with everything above, but also give you another set of canopy masks tailored to fit the interior of the glazing so that you can paint the interior and give your model that extra bit of realism.

  13. Hi Unconventional Peeps. For this GB I shall be starting the Eduard P-39 as a P-39N of the Italian AF, the last user to take them on (I hope I'm right). I may break with tradition by actually finishing it within the GB time period but, TBH, my record is poor. Here's where I'm starting: The Italian service monograph is an excellent reference even including a very good build of the Eduard kit. The eagle eyed amongst you will have clocked that there appears to be two of everything. Well I had planned a RAF Airacobra for the RAF Centenary GB but it never got going as my health stumbled. I will try and do both here instead. I 'needed' the Ultracast exhausts and I love their stuff more than I hate etched brass seat belts. So added a pair of seats to the order. The SBS props are, like everything SBS, beautifully executed and offer all the Airacobra options except the 11ft 7inch one I need. Hmm..... Looking through the monograph the Italian aircraft sit very nose high compared to the RAF ones even allowing for ammunition. I suspect the nose leg was lengthened or the oleo was pumped up to give adequate clearance for the larger prop on bumpy fields. Fortunately the monograph has a solution
  14. SE.5a Night Fighter 82133 Eduard (ProfiPACK) - 1:48 Eduard have already produced four previous boxings of their SE.5a kit in Hisso, Viper, and Royal Class forms. Now we have the 'Night Fighter' version, which is the most unusual of all the releases. It contains all the optional parts to build either a Hispano-Suiza or Wolsely Viper powered machine, with wooden or metal undercarriage legs, and a choice of three different propellers. The easy way to tell if an SE.5a was Viper powered is that the propeller is exactly midway between the top and bottom of the front radiator, whilst on the Hispano the prop is mounted more like two thirds of the way up. A second clue is that they rotated in opposite directions, so the Viper prop rotated anti-clockwise and the Hisso clockwise when viewed from the front. Adapted for use a night fighter late in the war to tackle raids being mounted by German bombers, the basic SE.5a does not appear to have been altered very much. Noticeable differences are the addition of various exhaust flame damping devices, and the mounting of Holt flares under the fuselage (an early form of landing light). Very likely some form of illumination was provided for the instruments as well. The Kit. Presented in Eduard's familiar Orange banded 'Profipack' box, the artwork features what looks to be a Zeppelin-Staaken machine being shot down by B658. Inside are two large sprues, one clear sprue, two etched brass frets, two sheets of decals, a pack of resin details, a small sheet of kabuki tape masks, and the instruction booklet. Sprue A. Crisply moulded in Eduards standard dark grey plastic, this sprue holds the wings, struts, tail, and undercarriage. The rib detail is nicely done with very fine stitching just visible on the rib tapes. I particularly like the way that the leading edge riblets are done, they really do look as if they are wooden frames covered by taut fabric, with a subtle amount of sag between. It is nice to see that the triangular openings for the wing pulley inspection covers are represented, with miniature pulleys inside. These were present on several British aircraft of this period, but this is the first time I can recall seeing them done in this scale. The struts have really lovely detail on their end brackets and are commendably thin. Both the 'wooden' and 'metal' undercarriage legs are supplied, with options A,B, and C requiring the 'metal' ones, and option D using the 'wooden' set. Sprue B. Equally finely moulded are all the fuselage parts, the engine, and numerous little details. The stitching work on the fuselage is possibly the best I have ever seen in this scale, it is really lovely. There are some very small detail parts such as trim wheels, footsteps, brackets, pipes etc that will need to be carefully cut from the sprue, because if the carpet monster gets them you'll be unlikely to ever see them again. Both the Hispano-Suiza and Viper engines are provided as separate crankcase + cylinder units, although both share the same ancillary parts. A four blade and a pair of two bladed propellers are supplied, and if using a two blader be careful to select the correct one as one is for clockwise rotation while the other is anti clockwise depending upon which engine you choose. Although I have not had a chance to build one of Eduard's SE.5a's yet, based on previous experience I have no doubt that it will all fit together beautifully. Sprue C. This is one of Eduard's circular clear sprues, with optional windscreens and covers for the pulley inspection covers in the wings. Etched frets. Two frets are supplied, the larger of the two is the 'standard' set provided in the other SE.5a kits (except the 'weekend' edition). Two styles of pre painted seat belts are provided, the more common wide lap type and the later four point type. Among the forty four parts are various cockpit details, including pre painted instruments, ammo drum boxes, and details for the guns. Also useful are the aileron and elevator control horns, complete with the cables. These save a very fiddly job! The second brass fret is much smaller, and provides night fighter specific items to form various brackets and mountings for the exhaust pipes and flame dampers, as well as the under fuselage flares. A nice little bomb rack is also on the fret, but obviously not required for the night fighter, nevertheless it will be very welcome in the spares box for other projects. Resin. Three sets of different exhaust flame dampers are supplied in resin, only one of which will be used according to which option you select. The detail is very fine, and the exhaust pipes have recessed openings at their ends. Masks. A small set of pre-cut kabuki tape masks contains items for the windscreens, inspection panels, and tyres. Decals. Two sheets are provided, the larger of them consisting of the diamond pattern for Option A, Cecil Lewis's machine. The slightly small sheet covers the other three options, including the multiple red striped option C. All the individual decals look to be very thin with minimal carrier film. The colours are good and in perfect register with sharp edges. As noted in the instructions, the main colour is not the usual dark green/brown PC10, but the green/black 'Night Invisible Varnish Orfordness' (NIVO). This is probably one of the first uses of what became a familiar colouring between the wars, and further adds to the interest. Marking Options. A. B658, flown by Capt. Cecil Lewis, No. 61 (Home Defence) Squadron, Rochford, United Kingdom, January 1918. B. C1805, flown by Lt. W. R. Oulton, No. 143 (Home Defence) Squadron, Detling, United Kingdom, May 1918. C. Flown by Capt. Gilbert Insall VC, No. 50 (Home Defence) Squadron, Bekesbourne, United Kingdom, May/ July 1918. D. D5995, flown by Lt. L. Lucas, No. 50 (Home Defence) Squadron, Bekesbourne, United Kingdom, summer 1918 Conclusion. This is a very well presented package by Eduard, and is without a doubt the best 1:48 scale SE.5a available. The addition of the resin and etched brass to make a night fighter is a clever move by Eduard, and as far as I know this is the first time that such an option has appeared for the SE.5a in any scale. The choice of marking options makes it almost impossible to choose just one, I will have to obtain another kit as I need do at least two of them. (Option A, Cecil Lewis was a truly extraordinary gentleman, who only died in 1997. Obituary here. and remarkable BBC interview here) Highly Recommended, a really superb offering from Eduard.

  19. Evolution L-39 Albatros C/ZO (11121) 1:48 Eduard ProfiPACK The L-39 is a fast jet trainer that was designed and manufactured in Czechoslovakia (as was) as a direct replacement for the earlier L-29 Delfin. It has been a success in its roles, and has received a number of upgrades that have resulted in new designations, and since the dismantling of the Soviet Union, some have found their way into private hands throughout the west, and they are often seen at airshows. It first flew in 1971, and was hoped to become the standard trainer across the Union, and the in 1977 the ZA variant was flying, fitted with a cannon and four hard-points for mounting various weapons in the Light Attack role. With the Soviet Union gone, the orders began to dry up, and an updated L-159 was produced in partnership with Rockwell, using more up-to-date avionics. More recently, an L-39NG has begun development to begin deliveries of a thoroughly modern "Next Generation" of Albatros. The Kit This isn't a new tooling from Special Hobby, and was originally release before the new millennium under the MPM brand name. It has plastic parts, resin and Photo-Etch (PE) brass parts, so any shortcomings of the original moulds are replaced by these new parts. In the box you'll find just three sprues of mid-grey styrene, a separately bagged clear sprue, a bag of resin parts; from Eduard we get new decals, new colour photoetch, and masks. The cockpit is first up, with seats augmented by PE belts and ejection handles before being attached to the cockpit floor and hemmed in at the sides by side consoles, with rudder pedals and control columns in the usual places. The Instrument Panels can be built up as styrene only, or with the addition of a layered PE and acetate lamination, bringing more realism to the completed assembly, with the completed sections cemented to the cockpit sill part that encompasses the whole crew area. With the addition of the resin exhaust tube and pen-nib fairing to the rear (with engine detail at the end) the cockpit with separate rear bulkhead are then secured between the fuselage half's. The lower wing is full-span, while the upper wings are separate, and have alternative actuator fairings for a number of the decal options, which are provided in resin to be fitted after removing the standard moulded-in ones. All the gear bay doors are depicted closed as if on the ground, with only small inserts visible for attaching the gear later, which would make an in-flight model very easy to achieve. The wings are mated to the fuselage at the same time as the two-part engine intakes, which terminate at the blank wall of the fuselage, but with some careful painting you can fool the eye that you're looking down a gradually darkening tunnel. The elevators fit with a tab and slot method, perpendicular to the tail, so tape or blutak them in place while the glue is still wet. The clear parts include a pair of lights for the end of the integrated tip-tanks, and the canopy is supplied as a four-part arrangement for posing the canopy open, with some small PE parts added to increase realism. The windscreen and blast-shield between the seats are fixed, while the openers can be glued open or closed at your whim, or depending on how proud of the job you've made of the cockpit. A number of PE and styrene parts are added around the airframe, and the landing gear, which are built from styrene parts with attractive resin wheels are then installed in their sockets, with a captive door on the strut, which has made me scratch my head a bit, as it looks like the door etched into the wing. However after a little research, it seems the split door is to keep FOD out of the bay and folds inward when the captive door takes its place as it retracts. Two tiny PE doors are added to the nose gear wheel, which is built up in the same manner as the mains. A few optional PE and resin parts are then fitted depending on which decal option you have chosen, with captions assisting in your choice. Markings There are two new decal options from Eduard on a sheet printed by Cartograf. L-39C RA1039K, Privately owned by the Moscow Aero Jet club featuring the impressive Golden Dragon L-39ZO 831135, Hungarian Air Force, 2005 Featuring the Hungarian Flag in the tail, & a shark on the fuselage. Conclusion I for one am glad to see this kit on re-release. It's not a brand-new moulding, so take care during construction and exercise your modelling skills to produce an attractive model of the type. The new parts from Eduard help the kit out in a lot of ways. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  20. #24/2018 And my dad´s next one... Eduard´s new Bf109G-10 Regensburg production, built oob, painted with Gunze and Tamiya, EZ Line for aerials. JaPo KG(J)6 book as reference, the book and Eduard go for a 74/75 camo, my dad chose a late war 75/83. All in all not a bad kit, goes together well like Eduard´s G-6. As usual, there has already been some discussion about the accuracy. Well, the oil cooler and the elevators are more G-6 style, the legs are earlier G style and, like the Hasegawa ones, about 2-3mm too long. Only Tamiya, Zvezda and Fujimi got their G legs right. Overall it looks like a G-10 and it was fun to build. Besides Me262s, also Bf109s and Fw190ies were used in the KG(J) units. Whereas earlier 109s were used for training, G-10 and K-4 were used for combat, like this machine from 1./KG(J)6, which was found wrecked at Prague-Kbely at the end of the war.

  21. The new Eduard G-10 Regensburg kit arrived today an my dad will start it immediately. Gonna do the bird on the box cover to join the already built KG(J)54 109 and 262 and the KG(J)6 262. The kit doesn´t include fuselage band decals for any of the kit schemes, so some masking and painting games ahead. DSC_0001 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  22. Hawker Tempest Mk.VI detail sets Eduard 1:32 Eduard appear to be covering all bases with their aftermarket detail sets for the Special Hobby 1:32 Hawker Tempest Mk.VI. First, you have the wonderful resin cockpit and machine gun bay, and now they have released four etched sets and a set of masks. The etched parts are for the interior, seatbelts, flaps and a smaller zoom set for the cockpit. At least the modeller can’t say they don’t have a choice of what to use on his model, or how much they want to add. Interior Set (32926) This set contains two sheets of PE, one of which is nickel-plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass. It improves on the kit detail in the cockpit by adding items to the sidewalls; replacing chunky styrene details on the turtle-deck behind the pilot; adding sill details to the cockpit sides; detailed new side consoles with throttles, levers and switches; replacement foot pedals for the rudder; a complete re-skin of the instrument panel with multi-layered pre-painted PE plus a more detailed compass mount A little dab of aqua clear will give them the appearance of glass fronts; a complete new pilot seat with masses of extra detail, and using the kit mounting brackets, and finally a few small details on the rear wheel yoke. The sheet also contains the myriad of coloured levers, knobs, side consoles, new throttle quadrant, switch clusters, trim wheel, and rudder pedal plates,. Flap Set (32423). The kit's flaps are moulded into the wing, so if you wanted to show them dropped, you'll need this set, which is surprisingly simple once you get past the preparation stage. You first need to remove the flaps from the underside of the wing, then the narrow section that's visible in the upper wing, taking care to thin the very edge of the remainder, which is shown in a scrap diagram for your ease. The flap bays are made up from one main part each, with a number of hinge-guides along their length, and a small wedge-shaped part just past half span. The flaps are made up using one main part which has all the tapering ribs attached, each one having a small fold at the base before twisting them round to glue them. You need to slide a piece of 1.6mm styrene (or brass) rod through the loops in the forward end, and add a small number of ancillary parts for inner and outer flap sections, and once done they are glued against the hinge-guides installed in the bay earlier. Interior Zoom Set (33191) This zoom set contains only the above pre-painted sheet and allows the modeller to build a well detailed cockpit without the hassle of getting bogged down with detail that might otherwise be deemed superfluous. Seatbelts (33192) This small single sheet set contains a complete and comprehensive set of seat belts, buckles and clasps. The belts look like they will be rather fiddly to assemble, but will look great when fitted. The seat belts are pre-painted so no need for some fiddly painting, just a slightly darker wash to tone them down a bit. Masks (JX215) Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, with compound curved handled by using frame hugging masks, while the highly curved gaps are in-filled with either liquid mask or off-cuts from the background tape. In addition you get a number of masks for the various light lenses, and a set of hub masks for the wheels, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort. Conclusion There’s never a kit release without Eduard set of two being designed for it as they are so prolific. Whilst not as comprehensive as some of the previous releases, but then they have released some resin items as well, they will add that extra level of detail sought by some modellers. The flap set looks to be particularly good and really will make the model stand out from the crowd. It is still disappointing that they chose to release the seatbelt set separate from what is basically an interior set, but I guess it gives modeller more choice on how much they want to add. The instructions aren’t the clearest, so care will need to be taken when adding the parts. The masks are always useful though. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
  23. L-39 Albatros Update set, Seatbelts & Masks 1:48 Eduard for Eduard/MPM Kit The MPM kit has recently been re-released by Eduard and therefore some sets are now available for the kit. Update Set (48962) This set has one brass fret. You get cockpit details, seat head box details, exhaust details, undercarriage details, new vortex generators, entry steps. and pitot tubes. Seatbelts (FE918) This set contains seatbelts, seat pads and ejection seat handles in the now familiar steel material. Tface Masks (CX517) Supplied on yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the glazing (inside & out). In addition you get a set of hub/tyre masks for the wheels, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort. Review samples courtesy of
  24. Ki-61-Id Hien Exhaust Stacks & Wheels 1:72 Eduard- For Tamiya Kit Exhaust Stacks (672202) This is a resin drop in set for the kit parts. Eduard's well cast resin will be worth it in this area. Wheels (672201) This set provides both main wheels with circumferential tread, and the tail wheel. A set of wheel masks (not shown) are also included. Conclusion These sets will enhance an already impressive model. Recommended. Review samples courtesy of
  25. Bella - P-39 Aircobra In Red Army Service (11118) 1:48 Eduard Dual Combo The P-39 was developed to meet a proposal in 1937 for a single engine high altitude interceptor having the tactical mission of interception and attack of hostile aircraft at high altitude. Specifications called for a level airspeed of 360mph at altitude, and a climb to 20,000 feet in under 6 minutes. Armament was to be heavy including a cannon, the engine was to be liquid cooled, and the aircraft was to feature a tricycle undercarriage. Bell had previously designed the YFM-1 Aracuda featuring a mid-fuselage mounted engine to free up space for a large calibre 37mm cannon which would fire through the propeller hub. This was unusual as fighters were normally designed around an engine, not a weapons system. The Bell XP-39 would make its maiden flight in April of 1938 reaching 20000 feet in 5 minutes and maintain 390 mph. However it was found that top speed at 20000 feet was lower than the original proposed 400 mph. Bell would change the aircraft configuration for production to remove the turbo charger so production aircraft were only fitted with a single-stage, single-speed supercharger. Its been argued that Bell did this to save money, though its been said that testing showed aerodynamic issues with it. As a result production aircraft performance declined above 12000 feet and it was never able to serve as a medium level let alone high level aircraft. The RAF ordered the aircraft based on the XP-39 specifications however limitations of the "new" aircraft became apparent, and despite modifications it never was deemed acceptable. Only one Squadron No. 601 would use the aircraft operationally. All UK based aircraft would be sent to Russia, along with aircraft being built under contract in the US. In contrast to the UK, the USSR appreciated the P-39, although they would use it primarily in the ground attack role. The tactical environment of the Eastern front suited a low speed, low altitude aircraft much better. As well as in ground attack the USSR developed successful group aerial fighting tactics for the aircraft. 5 out of the 10 high scoring Soviet aces scored a majority of kills flying P-39's. Contrary to popular myth the Soviets did not use the aircraft for Tank Busting as the US did not supply any armour piercing rounds for the aircraft. A total of 4758 aircraft we sent to Russia. The US requisitioned 200 aircraft from an order based for the UK, they called these aircraft the P-400 as they were advertised with a top speed to 400mph. Following the attack on Pearl Harbour these aircraft were deployed to the South West Pacific. Despite being out classed by Japanese aircraft the aircraft excelled in the ground attack. Pilots would fight Zeros and the aircraft were fairly even in the low level environment. By the end of 1942 over 80 Japanese aircraft were credited. These aircraft would go onto fly from Aleutian Islands, and serve in the Panama Canal Zone. The 81st & 350th Fighter Groups would fly in the Mediterranean TO but mainly on maritime patrol missions. Later the 81st would transfer to the Burma TO. The K & N models would feature an Aeroproducts propeller. The Kit The Eduard Cobra kit has been with us for a while now but it is still up to their excellent standards. It is being re-issued here in a dual combo boxing. Each kit comes on 3 sprues each of grey plastic, and a clear sprue. Also in the box are 3 sheets of PE; and a sheet of masks (not shown) which covers 2 kits. Construction starts shockingly enough with the cockpit area. The prominent radio area behind the cockpit is the first area to be built up, and the radios installed. The bulkhead behind the pilots seat is then installed. The seat is then installed along with the instrument panel. The front gear well is attached to the front of the cockpit along with the propeller shaft. Weight is indicated to be needed in this area due to the tricycle undercarriage, however there is no indication of exactly how much is recommended! Many of the cockpit parts are replaced with PE and seatbelts are provided on the frets as well. Once the cockpit/wheel well assembly is completed it can added to the fuselage, and the two parts closed up around it. Construction then moves onto the main wing. This is of a conventional single part lower with to which top left & right wings are added. The insides of the main wheel wells are added along with the oil coolers which are in the wing leading edge. The right inserts will need to be added depending on the armament of your chosen option. If the modeller is going to add underwing tanks or bombs, then the holes will need to be opened up at this point. Once the wings are completed they can be added to the main fuselage along with the tail planes. The last job on the wings is to complete the underside cooling vents. Construction then moves to the main landing gear. As mentioned at the start of the review two sets of brassin wheels are included in the kit. Once the wheels have been added to the model along with the multipart main gear doors and their actuators. Once the main wheels are completed the nose gear can also be constructed. The nose wheel and its gear doors are also added. If bombs or fuel tanks are to be fitted (and the modeller remembered to open up the locating holes before!) then these can be added at this point. The main canopy is then added (full canopy masks being provided) along with the engine exhausts and cockpit side doors. The final touches are to add the pitot probe, wing guns, and lastly to assemble the propeller. Different bosses are provided for the different armament options. Decals For this Russian Duel Combo boxing an impressive 10 decal options are provided by Eduard, on a sheet by Cartograf. P-39Q, flown by Guard Senior Lieutenant Konstantin Vasilievich Sukhov, 16.

It is also good to see that the slightly forgotten use of these aircraft in the New Guinea TO are getting some attention. Recommended. Overtrees (82119X & 82119-LEPT) If you have one of these new kits but wanted to do another of the great decal options, you'll be pleased to know that you can get just the sprues from the Eduard site, and if you want to add some detail, you can also get a set of Photo-Etch to go with it. They arrive in a white box with a sticker on the end, with all the styrene in the one bag, and the clear parts bagged inside that for their safety during transport and storage. The Overtrees as they're called can only be bought directly from Eduard, so click on the button below to pick up yours.
