Ju.52 Update Sets (For Revell)

1:48 Eduard




Revell have recently re-released their still excellent Ju.52 Tante Ju kit (reviewed here), and Eduard have reciprocated by re-tooling their sets for the modern modeller.  Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner.  Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point.  As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between.



Update Set (49987)

Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-printed, the other in bare brass.  A complete set of new layered instrument panels, throttle quadrant and radio gear plus a new engineering panel are the primary parts on the painted set, with new rudder pedals; racks & brackets; controls inside the fuselage; machine gun and ammo can details; and even some bracing to the nose-mounted engine's exhausts are also supplied.






Zoom! Set (FE987)

This set contains a reduced subset of the interior, namely the pre-painted parts that are used to improve on the main aspects of the cockpit, as seen above.  Whatever your motivations for wanting this set, it provides a welcome boost to detail, without being concerned with the structural elements.






Seatbelts STEEL (FE988)

In case you don't already know, these belts are Photo-Etch (PE) steel, and because of their strength they can be etched from thinner material, which improves realism and flexibility in one sitting.  Coupled with the new painting method that adds perceived extra depth to the buckles and other furniture by shading, they are more realistic looking and will drape better than regular brass PE.  As well as lap belts for the rest of the crew, the pilot has a four-point harness, and the rows of sideways-facing passenger seats have new lap belts added after removing all the moulded in representations from the whole aircraft.







Passenger Seats (49988)

This larger bare brass set two frets with a large floor skin for the passenger compartment, which is then decked out with two seats at the rear with recessed tops to accommodate parachute pack wearing crew.  A set of grab handles are fitted to the inner fuselage sides, and two sets of twin seats are made up to line the sides, adding a substantial improvement in detail, and begging to be used in conjunction with the seatbelt set.






Masks (EX655)

Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the canopy, with extra masks for the side windows and other glazing parts.  In addition you get a set of hub/tyre masks for all the wheels, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort.
