  1. A6M5 Zero Photo Etch Detail Set for Airfix Kit 1:72 Eduard Airfix’s Zero, released towards the end of 2011, was an impressive little kit which marked the continued development of Airfix’s product line. Although a series 1 kit, it featured an impressive amount of detail without compromising ease of construction. The panel lines were also noticeably finer than some of Airfix’s previous efforts. Now, with elegant inevitability, Eduard have produced a photo etched detail set to complement the kit. A6M2 Zero (self adhesive) 1:72 Eduard The set is comprised of two separate frets. The first is the kind of pre-painted, self-adhesive fret that we are all now familiar with, thanks to Eduard. It contains a multitude of parts for the cockpit, including a multi-layered instrument, replacement sidewalls and side consoles, rudder pedals, throttle control, and additional sidewall detail. As with the set Eduard released last month for the new Tamiya Zero, a realistic replacement seat is also included, along with pre-painted harnesses and detail parts for the head rest. If you wish to use the pre-painted sidewalls, you’ll need to cut away the kit’s raised plastic detail. The second fret includes the ignition wiring for the engine and fasteners for the engine cowling, as well as details for the wing folds. A filter for the carburettor intake is also included, as is a new arrestor hook. The undercarriage benefits from replacement undercarriage doors, which are obviously much thinner than the kit parts, as well as hydraulic lines and other smaller details. A6M2 Zero (Zoom) 1:72 Eduard The Zoom set is included just the pre-painted self-adhesive fret from the set reviewed above. Given the more than reasonable level of detail offered by Airfix, this may make a sensible purchase if you just want to jazz your kit up a little. Conclusion This is a neat package which will allow you to elevate a very good kit to another level. If you’ve picked up one or two of these kits from Airfix, then I’d recommend you give careful thought to acquiring one of these sets from Eduard too. Recommended. Review sample courtesy of
