F-16 Seat and Wheels
Eduard "Brassin", 1/48 scale
HyperScale is proudly supported by Squadron.com
As if Eduard was not busy enough with its prolific release schedule of kits, photo-etched range and self-adhesive masks, this innovative Czech company has now launched a new line of products.
Eduard's "Brassin" is a series of multimedia accessory sets that blend the crisp, three dimensional detail of modrn resin with the pre-printed precision of Eduard's colour photo-etched parts.
The first two releases are in 1/48 scale, and are designed for Tamiya's superb F-16 family.
Eduard Brassin 648 001 - F-16 Early Seat
This multimedia seat comprises four parts in grey resin and a colour photo-etched fret.
Being applicable to the F-16A/B/C/D, this seat will be suitable for any of Tamiya's F-16 kits.
The main resin parts are the body of the seat, the rear rail and a separate cushio. I especially like this touch, as it will make the cushion much easier to paint.
Detail of the resin parts is excellent, while the colourful pre-printed photo-etched set will enhance the basic seat with harness straps, pull handle, "Remove Before Flight" tag and more.
Eduard Brassin 648 005 - F-16 Early Wheels
Eduard's Brassin F-16 wheels are appropriate for any F-16A/B/C/D up to Block 32.
The resin wheels are perfectly cast onto narrow strips. Photo-etched parts add hydraulic line and tie-down detail.
A nice bonus is the addition of resin chocks for the wheels. These are cast in yellow resin, so no painting will be required.
Self-adhesive masks are provided to assist the painting of the tyres.
Both of these high quality accessories are quite modestly proced and will be a beautifully detailed finishing touch for your Tamiya F-16 kit.
Thanks to Eduard for the sample
