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 second batch of two releases are in 1/48 scale, and are designed for Academy's nice 1/48 scale F-22A.


 

Eduard Brassin 648 002 - F-22A Seat

This multimedia seat comprises four parts in grey resin and a colour photo-etched fret.

This seat will be suitable for Academy's 2009 F-22A kit.

 

 

The four resin parts make up the body of the seat, the rear rail and a separate cushion.

 

 

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 648 003 - F-22A Wheels

Eduard's Brassin F-22A wheels have also been designed for the recent Academy 1/32 scale F-22A.

The resin wheels are perfectly cast in a single piece each onto narrow strips.

 

 

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 Academy F-22A kit.

Thanks to Eduard for the sample
