Eduard 1/72 Spitfire Mk.Vc Photo Etch
Airfix's new 1/72nd scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vc kit has been warmly received. It's accurate and well detailed right out of the box, but you can up the ante with Eduard's photo-etch set. It is very comprehensive and it consists of 88 parts on 2 frets, one of which is partially pre-painted. This fret includes a new instrument panel, seat harness, throttle quadrant, map case, etc.
The other fret includes a new seat, seat armor, landing gear doors, fuselage aerial mount, rudder pedals, etc. You also get new oil cooler faces, supercharger intake dust cover, brake wires, a complete set of flaps, etc. The flaps are highly detailed and they will be relatively easy to install using Eduard's well illustrated and easy to follow instructions.
There are also numerous enhancements for the entire frame-rear view mirror, gunsight, rudder actuator, lower wing radiator faces and exit door, fuselage access doors, etc. Airfix's Spitfire Mk.Vc is a great kit and if you want to enhance the detail Eduard comes to the rescue with this comprehensive PE set. I recommend it and I would like to thank Eduard for the review sample.
