Hi chaps. I recently purchased a zvezda petlyakov pe-8on, stalins plane, in 1/72. Does anyone know if there are any detail parts for it available? I've got an eduard mask set, but can't find much else. There is a gonza photoetch set, but I can't seem to track one down. Can anyone help? Thank you for looking. Matt
There are some great new plastic model kit releases available from Master Box and Meng Models. Master Box release the next kit in their World War One series; the Hand to Hand Fight German & British Infantrymen. Meng Models releases feature a new 1/72 F-106A Delta Dart, as well as two sets of resin detail parts sets. For full details, please see our newsletter.
Mig-21 Airbrakes - late (for Eduard) 1:48 Eduard Brassin (648064) The new Eduard Mig-21 kits are at the leading edge of injection moulding technology, rivalling even Tamiya for detail and fit. This resin update set is designed to replace the kit parts portraying the two forward ventral air-brakes and the aft airbrake under the belly of the beast. The set arrives in Eduard's familiar clamshell case, with the resin parts protected by a thick sheet of foam at the rear, and the instructions sandwiched between the two halves of the shell. Inside are six resin parts, three of which are attached to one pouring stub. The detail on the three airbrakes is an improvement on the injection moulded kit parts, and the thickness of the outer skin is most definitely scale, as it can be seen through when held up to the light. Of course this makes the parts quite delicate, but as they will be amongst the last parts added to the airframe at the end of the build, this shouldn't be a problem. All of the parts are sensibly attached to the moulding plugs, and the brakes themselves are connected to the plugs by wafer thin shims that should be easy to remove with either a fine-toothed razor saw, or by repeated light passes with a sharp scalpel. Conclusion The finesse of these parts far outstrips their styrene counterparts, and as such they will improve the scale look of your creations immensely. They are also super-detailed and as such are to be recommended. Review sample courtesy of
