FirstLook

 

Eduard has just expanded their range of accessories for the 1/48 scale Tamiya Mosquito B.Mk.IV kit.

This new SPACE set comprises 3D printed decals for the instrument panels and placards; plus photo-etched parts for the half-tone harness straps and other small details.

 

 

I have used SPACE sets on my Eduard Fw 190 F-8 amongst others and I have been 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.

In the end I did not dip the 3D Decals in water at all - I simply popped them off with the tip of a hobby knife.

 

 

These photos show the Fw 190 F-8 SPACE set in action on my Eduard 1/48 scale Wurger.

 

 

I used Gator’s Grip acrylic glue to secure the 3D printed decals to the plastic kit parts.

 

 

Detailed instructions are included.

 

 

Conclusion

 

The use of the Space set will result in a different look for your Tamiya Mosquito B.Mk.IV cockpit. There's certainly no lack of choice when detailing a cockpit these days!

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
