Photo Etch Detail Sets & Masks for Airfix Spitfire Mk Vb

1:48 Eduard

Airfix's new 1/48 Spitfire Mk.Vb (reviewed here) was a most welcome and unexpected addition to their 1.48 Spitfire range. As noted by the reviewer the kit is excellent though there is room for some aftermarket improvement. Eduard have come forward with a few of these with these sets.

Interior Self-Adhesive Set FE695

This is comprised of a pre-printed, self-adhesive fret. The pre-painted set starts off with a host of small parts for the cockpit, including a multi-layered instrument panel, details for the rudder pedals, sidewalls and throttle control. A full set of painted harnesses for the seat are also included.

This set contains the full fret from the set reviewed above. A second plain brass fret contains additional parts for the radiator, carburettor intake, entry door, canopy mirror, landing gear brake pipes, and wheel well interior parts. This fret also includes details for the frames behind the seat, and the pilot's head armour.

Landing Flaps 48822

This set provides a complete replacement for the kit flaps so the modeller can put the landing flaps in the down position. Detailed flaps are made up, in addition the indicators for the flaps are made. A handy template is included for making the holes in the wing for the indicators.

Flexible Mask


Eduard's pre-cut masks are the bee's knee's if masking canopies is toward the bottom of your list of favourite modelling tasks. This set contains masks for both types of canopy included in the kit, as well as masks for the main landing wheels

Conclusion

Airix's new tool Spitfire VB was a welcome release. If you want to add more to the kit then these sets enable you to do this. You can chose between the basic and more involved interior sets, and even have the dropped flaps if you wish to do so. The paint masks are, as always, great time savers too. Recommended.
