AFTERMARKET REVIEW


Eduard Spitfire Mk. IX Late Löök for the Eduard Kit
1:48 Scale

vol_2_image

Löök is a new product line by Eduard that feature ultra-fine pre-painted resin aircraft instrument panels.  Here, we examine the Löök set designed to fit into the 1:48 scale Eduard Spitfire Mk. IX.

This set comes with one resin part that appears to be cast in black resin and then painted using Eduard’s production process.  Eduard has also included their pre-painted STEEL set for the Spitfire Mk. IX shoulder harnesses and lap belts.

The resin part is a fully three-dimensional casting with appropriately raised instrument bezels, switches, knobs, and other details such as individual yellow and red instrument bezels.  The precision-painted instrument dial faces are the real highlight.  Consulting my Spitfire Mk. IX references, each dial looks accurately represented, and even in 1:48 scale, you can visually identify and distinguish between the compass, altimeter, 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 nice some shading/shadow effects.

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