Eduard 1/72 FW190F-8 Overtrees
This is the Overtrees boxing of Eduard's 1/72nd scale Focke-Wulf FW190F-8 kit. It consists of 153 parts on 4 sprues, one of which is clear. This is a well detailed and comprehensive kit. It includes the broad bladed propeller applicable to the A-9/F-9 variants, your choice of treaded or smooth tires, flat or "blown" canopies, armored canopy glass and empty upper gun bay for Sturmbock planes, etc.
Additional optional pieces include night fighter radar arrays, drop tank and rack, under wing rockets, SC-500 bomb...
Because this is an Overtrees kit, it lacks both decals and instructions. But you can download instructions from Eduard's website, and there are a lot of aftermarket decal sheets from the likes of Authentic Decals, AeroMaster, Eagle Editions, Third Group, etc.
The F-8 kit is accurate and well detailed, albeit a bit complex. It's sufficiently detailed out of the box; you can get by with a set of photo-etch seat belts. Or you can take your pick from a suite of Eduard enhancements (photo-etch sets, canopy masks) or choose some resin detail parts from their Brassin line (wheels, cockpit, engine, gun bays).
I recommend this Overtrees kit and I would like to thank Eduard for the review sample.
