AFTERMARKET REVIEW


Eduard Brassin Bf 109G-10 Cockpit (for the Eduard Kit)
1:48 Scale

vol_2_image

The Eduard Bf 109G-10 kit cockpit is nicely done, especially for an injection molded plastic kit.  Yet, if you are shooting for a super-detailed level of work, this Brassin set from Eduard is a complete replacement for the kit cockpit, and its combination of cast resin parts, photoetched metal details, clear acetate parts, and a decal sheet represents a rather exceptional step-up in detail.

The Brassin Bf 109G-10 cockpit consists of 19 cast resin parts, 25 pre-painted photoetched metal parts on one fret, 25 unpainted photoetched metal parts on a second fret, a clear piece of acetate containing three clear parts pertaining to the gunsight glass, and a decal sheet.  The quality of casting and the rich detail of these parts makes this among the best 1:48 scale Brassin cockpit detail sets that Eduard has produced to date.

The cockpit is completely represented here, from the cockpit tub, gorgeously cast sidewalls, pilot’s bucket seat, stick, rudders, trim wheels, gunsight, instrument panel, and canopy details.  The pre-painted photoetched metal details look great, especially the shoulder harnesses and lap belts.  The pre-painted instrument panel PE parts are very impressive in this scale, though they do tend to be more “idealized” dial face details than accurate representations of the real thing.

If PE parts aren’t your forte, an alternate resin instrument panel is provided with full relief detail to be used with the decal instrument faces.  It’s hard to say which option will provide a better look.  There are also tiny PE parts for various knobs and control handles…and I mean they’re SMALL.  Handle with care as these parts will be easy to lose. 

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/
