  1. Ju.88C-6 Detail Upgrades (for ICM) 1:48 Eduard ICM have been busily filling many a gap in the ranks of kits of German bombers from WWII, and are well on the way to creating a nearly complete line-up of Junkers Ju.88s for the modelling public. 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 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 instru
  2. Jagdtiger Detail Set (36454 for Takom) 1:35 Eduard Takom’s recent Jagdtiger opened up the 1:35 market to three main choices for this monsters, and here’s a set of upgrades to the existing detail that you can use to improve your kit. 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. This set is etched from a single sheet of unpainted brass, and contains a wealth of parts to detail your Jagdtiger.
  3. Hawker Hunter F.4/F.5 Upgrade Sets (for Airfix) 1:48 Eduard Airfix’s new Hunter family has been a welcome addition to their range, and has consigned a lot of old Academy kits to deep stash or eBay, which is often the way of things in our hobby. 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 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 inst
  4. Heinkel He.111Z Upgrade (For ICM) 1:48 Eduard ICM’s new range of He.111s in various guises recently included the behemoth Zwilling, much to my surprise and glee. I’ve been wanting one of these twin He.111s for a while, and while I wasn’t prepared to go to 1:32, I can cope with 1:48 at a push. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in their standard modular manner. Get what you want for the areas 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
  5. Shackleton MR.3 Update Sets (For Revell) 1:72 Eduard After a few decades waiting, Shackleton lovers were treated to a range of new kits recently and Revell’s MR.3 is amongst the latest, as reviewed here. 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 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.
  6. J-35 Draken Updates (for Hasegawa) 1:48 Eduard Hasegawa answered a lot of prayers when they released their kit of the venerable Saab Draken, and there have been some sets available for it previously, but these are new ones. 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. There are two sets, both intended for the cockpit, with the seatbelts separated so they can be etched in the new thinner steel PE.
  7. F-22A Upgrades (for Hasegawa) 1:48 Eduard Hasegawa released their Raptor just after the Academy released theirs, both having their pluses and minuses in the shape and detail department, but I'm guessing you went for the Hasegawa one if you're reading this. 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. The two sets are to be used inside the cockpit, and if you get the cockpit set it would be churlish to om
  8. Heinkel He.111H-16 Upgrade & Mask Sets (for ICM) 1:48 Eduard ICM are rattling through most of the major variants of the Heinkel He.111, and we reviewed the H-16 here late last year. 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 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. Nos
  9. Heinkel He.219 Uhu Update Sets (for Tamiya) 1:48 Eduard The Tamiya kit of the impressive-looking He.219 has been with us for quite a while now, and despite its advancing years, it is just as good a kit as it was then, along the same lines of quality as their very well-regarded Mosquito kit in the same scale. The Uhu/Owl appeared near the end of WWII partially at least due to the influence of Ernst Heinkel with the RLM, bullying its way into limited production despite its known shortcomings that were never fixed due to its short lifespan and eventual cancellation a
  10. B-24 Instrument Panel Upgrade (PE32 LIB for Hobby Boss) 1:32 Airscale You'll probably all have heard of Airscale and their product range to help modellers that like to detail their cockpits in the shape of instrument dial decals, Photo-Etch (PE) parts and so forth, and if you've ever seen Peter's work, you'll also know that he's a perfectionist who always seems to be happy, which is a nice combination. The set arrives in a ziplok bag with a card insert in the front, instructions on the back, a fret of thick gauge Photo-Etch (PE) brass
  11. Tornado F.3 ADV Upgrades (for Revell) 1:48 Eduard Revell gave us a new Tornado IDS in 1:48 to knock the ageing Italeri and the dubious Hobby Boss kits off the top, and have now tooled an ADV that British aviation enthusiasts know as the F.3, which was our interceptor for quite some time until the Typhoon took over in recent years. 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 you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a
  12. Yak-28P Firebar Upgrade Sets (Bobcat Model) 1:48 Eduard The 1:48 Firebar snuck onto the market from Bobcat Model, which is the new name for Xuntong Model. It has no doubt pleased many a Soviet aviation fan, as kits in this scale have been expensive and of the multimedia variety, which puts off a great many potential purchasers. 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 you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a fl
  13. Su-34 Upgrade Sets (HobbyBoss) 1:48 Eduard The 1:48 Su-34 was greeted by a huge buying frenzy, and it's now surprisingly difficult to find one for a decent price in the UK, so it has clearly sold well. 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 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.
  14. STEEL Photo-Etched Seatbelts 1:48 Eduard Eduard's new STEEL seatbelt range combines the simplicity of pre-painted Photo-Etch (PE) belts with the thin, flexible steel that they now use, resulting in seatbelts that look more in-scale, and are easier to bend to drape more naturally over the ejection seat or crew seat as the case may be. The paint used also seems more flexible, and better able to cope with the rigors of fitting the belts into position without cracking and peeling off, which was sometimes a danger with the previous nickel-plated brass types. As well a
  15. While I wait for the carbon decals for the Lotus 88 I'm moving on to my second interim build. The Lancia 037 has had its gloss coat done and is on the home stretch, so I've decided to start on the Fujimi 1/24 Ferrari 250 GTO. I'm going to try and make a replica of Nick Mason's car as it's the only GTO I've seen in the flesh, albeit about 25 or more years ago at Goodwood. I have bought the Hobby Design p-e kit and also the KA set for the Revell cat as it has the right size wire wheels. I also bought the Fujimi Borrani wheels set but the rims are too wide, designed for a GT40 or Ferrari Dayt
  16. Dear Fellow Modellers, Finally I'm starting my thread on this much anticipated GB. I'm building Revell's 1/72 A-4 version and will be using Quickboost's resin exhausts and Eduard's BIGED PE and mask set. I'll be building scheme A, as shown in the box, for an aircraft based in Sicily, Italy, June 1941: As usual, here are pictures of the sprues. The clear parts are good, very transparent, without defects: The plastic is beautifully detailed, neither too soft nor too hard: This is the decal sheet, which looks good: I'll have to use swastikas from an xtradecal sheet. There's
  17. I've always been interested in having a go at photo-etch and would like to learn how to do it and where to get the parts in UK. I haven't come across anyone having successfully achieved this on an amateur basis, i.e. as a home modeller doing it for themselves and not business. Has anyone done this? If so, is it possible to provide some basic tips on what materials are required, where to get them in UK, how to make an etch? I'm not concerned about the drawing/illustration side of things, more about getting started in the physical process of making an etch from thin brass. Thanks in advance
  18. We have just received our delivery from Airfix of the 1/48 scale British Forces Vehicle Crew figures set, and the two photo-etch parts sets; one for the Land Rover, and the other for both the Coyote and Jackal. Also released today are two 1/32 scale figure sets; the Gurkhas and Japanese Infantry.
  19. Cockpit Instrument Bezels & Details 1:48, 1:32 Airscale These two new Photo-Etch (PE) sets from Airscale are perfect for those of us that need to scratch build cockpits or improve on older kits that have little internal details. The sets contain multiples of almost everything you need to create a highly detailed and realistic instrument panel anywhere in the cockpit, which just needs painting, and some of Airscale's excellent instrument decals adding to finish the job. The sets are supplied on bare brass frets measuring 5cm x 7cm, and should contain sufficient parts for at least
  20. Seahawk Mk.100/101 Updates 1:48 Eduard The Trumpeter kit has been available for some time now in the FGA.6 and latter the Mk.100/101 export version. They are fairly simple kits with much to commend them, but if you want to improve on the basics that are included, these sets could well be right up your street. Seahawk Mk.100/101 (49608) This set is targeted at the airframe in general, rather than internal or external details only, as there's not much other than the cockpit and wheel bays that needs addressing. It arrives in Eduard's usual flat package, and includes two frets of Photo-Etc
  21. F-35B Lightning II Update Set (for Kitty Hawk) 1:48 Jasmine Model We reviewed the excellent new kit from Kitty Hawk models a while back, and now Jasmine Models have popped onto our radar with this nice little update set that adds some nice details to this new kit. The set is simple and unassuming, arriving in a very low profile flat package that is stiffened by card to protect it in transit and in stash afterward. Inside is one sheet of thin Photo-Etched (PE) brass containing all the parts, the aforementioned card backing piece, and a sheet of full-colour photographic instructions that s
