FirstLook

 

Eduard has just expanded their range of accessories for their 1:48 scale Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 family.

These two sets will be idea for any of the Weekend Editions or Overtrees Editions from Eduard's Bf 109 G-6 and G-14 family, which do not come with photo-etched parts.

 

 

The modeller is offered the option of 3D printed parts from Eduard's new Space range, or the almost traditional pre-painted colour photo-etch - the choice is yours!

 

3DL48014 - Bf 109 G-6 SPACE for the Eduard kit

This SPACE set comprises 3D printed decals for the instrument panel and placards, plus photo-etched parts for the two-tone harness straps and throttles.

 

 

I used a SPACE set recently on my Bronco 1/48 scale MiG-15 and I was very pleased with the results.

 

 

The 3D printed decals look really good in real life - better than my much larger-than-life studio photos!

I found that the 3D decals barely needed to be wet at all before they would slide - or sometimes fall - off the backing sheet. I used Gator’s Grip acrylic glue to secure the 3D printed decals to the plastic kit parts.

 

 

Detailed instructions are included.

 

 

For what you get, I think USD$10.95 represents exceptional value.


 

 

FE1170 - Eduard Zoom Bf 109 G-6 Weekend for the Eduard Kit

If you prefer colour photo-etch for your instrument panel and side consoles you are in luck!

 

 

Even the entry-level Zoom series offers super detail with one colour photo-etched fret providing detail focused on the cockpit.

 

 

Specifically, the set includes a new multi-part pre-coloured photo-etched instrument panel, handles,switches, knobs and more.

This is a compact but noticeable update to Eduard's 1/48 scale Weekend Edition or Overtrees Edition from their Bf 109 G-6 and G-14 family.

 

 

Conclusion

 

The use of the Space or the Zoom photo-etched sets will result in a noticeably better detailed cockpit in Eduard's 1/48 scale Weekend Edition or Overtrees Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-6 kits.

These are certainly useful upgrades.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
