Eduard 1/72 Spitfire XVI Flaps
By Jim Bates
Another set for the recent 1/72 Eduard Spitfire XVI, this one is all photo etch and its 22 parts allows the flaps to be dropped. While it is pretty unusual to see a Spitfire on the ground with the flaps lowered, this set has nice detail and sure will look nice when installed. Some cutting will be required on the base kit and both the flaps and the flaps wells will require some careful bending to depict the ribs. The flap indicators for the top of the wing are an especially nice, if delicate touch. I would like to thank Eduard for the review sample.
