Eduard's latest addition to their extensive range of radial-engined Fw 190s is the Weekend edition of the F8 fighter-bomber. Now they have released a set of photo etched details and pre-cut masks, so you can convert your Weekend kit into a Profipack with fewer decal options...

The photo etched pack includes two small frets. The pre-painted set includes parts for the cockpit, including harnesses for the seat, a new instrument panel, details for the sidewalls and other parts. The second fret contributes a set of rudder pedals, as well as some aerial and details for the landing gear bays. Being the fighter-bomber variant, replacement ballistic tails for the various bombs are also included.

The masks cover the canopy but not the landing gear wheels.

Conclusion

 

This is a sensible and worthwhile upgrade for Eduard's rather excellent kit, although you could save yourself some time and trouble by just seeking out the Profipack version of the kit. Nevertheless, these sets include all of the extra details that you would want. Recommended.
