FirstLook

 

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
