Spitfire Mk.Vb Updates (for Eduard Weekend)

1:48 Eduard




We’ve just reviewed the new Weekend boxing of the Spitfire Mk.Vb Mid from Eduard here, and for those of you that have changed your mind about the level of detail you want to include in your model, here are a couple of sets that can help you out quickly and easily.  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.



Spitfire Mk.Vb Weekend Upgrade Set (FE1322)

This includes a single fret of nickel-plated and pre-painted brass to increase the detail of the Weekend kit, if you’ve changed your mind about wanting a quick easy build with no PE already.  A complete set of new three-layered instrument panels; added levers for the cockpit; seat armour and head armour; link hose between the two tanks in the rear; flare rack for the front of the seat; replacement throttle quadrant; rudder pedal straps; firing lever for the control column; compass insert; a full set of pre-painted four-point seatbelts; additional internals to the cockpit sidewalls; grilles for the intakes and oil cooler; surface meshes for both sides of the radiator baths under the wings; supports under the radiator flaps; closure mechanism for the pilot’s door; bases under two underwing outlets; rear-view mirror and closure mechanism for the canopy, and pop-up undercarriage indicator stalks on the upper wings that require a small hole to be drilled in the wing, as located by the red dot in the diagrams.








Masks Tface (EX914)

Supplied on a two sheets of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with everything you would expect for the exterior glazing, but also give you another set of canopy masks tailored to fit the interior of the glazing so that you can paint the insides of the canopy and give your model that extra bit of realism. From experience, it’s best to put the outer set of masks on first, then line up the smaller inner sections with those for nice neat frames on both sides.
