AFTERMARKET REVIEW


Eduard Brassin Fw 190A Exhaust Stacks -- 1:48 Scale

vol_2_image

Eduard’s new-tool 1:48 scale Fw 190As, which first hit the streets in late 2017, was Detail & Scale’s Best Kit of 2017 (see our review HERE).  Between their Fw 190A-3 and A-4 kits and the Royal Class Fw 190A Early Versions offering, there’s now a broad selection of A-variants for the scale modeler to choose from.

There’s not a lot that one can vastly improve upon with these kits, but due to some of the limitations of injection plastic molding, the exhaust stacks of the BMW 801-D2 engines are pretty flat and one dimensional.  Due to their oblong shapes, drilling open the kit’s exhaust stacks with a standard round pin vise is impossible.

So, for the most accurate and realistic Fw 190A exhaust stacks with recessed exhausts, Eduard’s Brassin Line has released these very handy cast resin parts.  It’s a simple set, consisting of only three parts (left, right, and bottom exhaust stacks).  They simply fit into the kit and no modification is necessary.  The recessed exhaust ports are not particularly deep, but a wash with your favorite dark paint will certainly get in there and the effect will be complete.

Overall, this Brassin set might not have a lot of parts, but it goes far in improving a key set of details for the Eduard family of Fw 190A kits.  It is also pretty inexpensive, and its value certainly stretches far.

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/
