HMS Dreadnought 1:350 etched sets from Eduard

HMS Dreadnought 1907

Eduard 1:350

The release of the Trumpeter HMS Dreadnought was most welcome; although it didn’t come as much of a surprise as the Zvezda kit it was still very welcome. Trumpeter have since released a later version, but these two sets of etched brass from Eduard are for the 1907 version.

(53091) This single sheet set may not be as comprehensive as some other manufacturers releases, but it will certainly add some nice fine detail for those who don’t want, or require any more than this to detail their model. The sheet contains the standard items found in most releases, such as new hatch covers and deckhouses, vertical and inclined ladders. In addition there are also new turret roofs, complete with railings, new bridge railings, bridge wing supports and bridge house, steam pipes for both funnels, ropewalks for the yardarms and replacement cockpits for the ships boats. The compass platform on the quarterdeck is also replaced with a very complex and rather challenging structure which will look great if done correctly.

The railing set, (53094) by its very nature provides a full set of ships railings each, designed to fit in their respective positions.

Conclusion

Yet another nice set from Eduard which will go some way to making a very nice model of the Dreadnought into a great model. Apart from one or two challenging structures, it shouldn’t be too taxing for any modeller who has some experience of using photo etched parts. Recommended
