AFTERMARKET REVIEW


Eduard Bf 109F Löök (for the Eduard Kit) -- 1:48 Scale

vol_2_image

The Löök product line by Eduard’s provides super-detailed, single piece, pre-painted cast resin aircraft instrument panels.  Here, we take a peek at the Löök set developed for the 1:48 scale Eduard Bf 109F kits.  

This set features one resin part (the instrument panel) and six photoetched metal parts in the pre-painted STEEL set for the Bf 109 shoulder harnesses and lap belts.

The instrument panel is a fully three-dimensional resin casting with appropriately raised instrument bezels, switches, knobs, and other details.  The precision-painted instrument dial faces are real highlights.  Consulting my 109 references, each dial looks accurately represented, and even in 1:48 scale, you can visually identify and distinguish between artificial horizon, turn indicator, compass, airspeed indicator, and so forth.  Then, Eduard dropped in a bit of their distortion-free, self-leveling clear glass treatment (I think it’s a clear gel medium) atop each dial face.

The STEEL photoetched seatbelts set also comes with the Löök instrument panel.  As mentioned in previous reviews, these look great and contain details including stitching and even some shading/shadow effects.

For the quality and detail that it brings to the table, this Löök set is also very well priced.  We extend our sincere thanks to Eduard for the review sample.  You can visit them on the web at http://www.eduard.com and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/EduardCompany/
