FirstLook

 

Eduard has released a set of 3D printed resin air brakes for Tamiya's gorgeous 1/48 scale F-4B Phantom II.

Inside the resealable plastic bags are two parts in grey resin plus a small decal sheet and instructions.

 

 

The resin parts have exquisite detail raised and recessed cast in place. This is superior to the detail on the kit parts. Just lovely.

 

 

The decal sheet supplies four placards - a nice touch.

 

 

As usual for 3D printing, the resin parts are attached via multiple attachment strips. These should be quite fast and straightforward to remove.

 

 

Once the parts are removed from their printing strips, they will be a drop-fit replacement for the kit's air brakes.

Instructions are supplied on a single folded paper sheet.

 

 

Conclusion

 

This will be a luxurious finishing touch for your Tamiya 1/48 scale F-4B Phantom II.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples.
