FirstLook

 

Eduard has just expanded their range of accessories for their 1:48 scale Tempest Mk. V family.

This new SPACE set comprises 3D printed decals for the instrument panels 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 too.

 

 

Conclusion

 

The use of this SPACE set will result in a different look for your Eduard's 1/48 scale Tempest Mk.V cockpit.

There's no lack of choice when detailing a cockpit these days!

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
