FirstLook


After releasing no fewer than 12 sets for the brand new Airfix 1/48 scale P-51D Mustang recently, Eduard has added another three BRASSIN updates that will be suitable for the Airfix and other Mustang kits.

648 349 - P-51D 75 Gal Fuel Tanks. USD$7.96

This set includes two one-piece 75 Gallon drop tanks cast perfectly in light grey resin. Detail is excellent.

 

 

Photo-etched parts offer detail parts and fuel lines.

 

 

Decals are included for stencil markings.

 


 

648 350 - P-51D 108 Gal Paper Tanks. USD$10.36

There are two tanks in this set.

 

 

They are cast in grey resin and made up from three parts each - front, middle and rear sections. The front and rear sections are bevelled at the join and keyed with handed locating tabs on the sides. This is a clever and effective way to ensure gap-free alignment.

 

 

Photo-etched parts offer caps, detail parts and fuel lines.

 

 

Stencil decals are included for this set too.


648 359 - P-51D Rear View Mirrors. USD$3.96

 

 

They don't come much easier than this! There are three round-style rear vision mirrors included in this set.

They are prefectly cast in grey resin.

 

 

Conclusion

 

Yet more nice upgrades for the new Airfix 1/48 scale P-51D, although these three could really be used on any 1/48 scale Mustang kit.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
