Ki-61-1d Hien Detail Set
Brengun, 1/72 scale
Reviewed by Graham Carter
Eduard's 1/72 Avia B.534 IV serie Weekend Edition is available online from Squadron.com
This set is for the much-praised Tamiya kit and offers some beautifully photo-etched parts that replace or enhance the kit’s parts.
The instruction sheet clearly indicates which parts are modified or replaced and the cockpit, in particular, will benefit from some spectacular enhancements - the seat, instrument panel and sidewalls will look amazing with these additions. A sheet of acetate instruments goes with the control panels.
The intake has a complex baffle-plate component, while the undercarriage legs, canopy and control surfaces all have improved parts. The u/c doors are a work of art and all components have better tie-down rings and scissor-links.
This set offers gob-smacking details that will make an already excellent kit just stand out from the crowd.
Thanks to Brengun for the review samples.
