Eduard Brassin 1/48 FW190A-4 Cockpit
This Brassin cockpit set is for Eduard's recent Focke-Wulf FW190A-4 kit. It consists of 59 parts, of which 22 are resin. You also get 35 photo-etched parts, many of them pre-painted, on a single fret. There is also a single acetate sheet containing 4 gun sight lenses, and a small decal sheet of intrument dial faces.
The detail of the resin components is spectacular, especially that of the sidewalls and the floor. Focke-Wulf cockpits were painted RLM 66, a fairly dark grey, so I recommend that you add some Neutral Grey or white paint to the RLM 66 so that excellent detail is easier to see.
The photo-etched pieces add more detail and finesse. The PE fret includes such items as a new instrument panel and seat harness. There is also a cockpit storage access hatch, rudder pedals, etc.
Eduard's series of Wurger kits have been well received. They are accurate in shape and outline, well detailed and appropriately complex. The FW190A-4 kit interior is quite nice, but it pales in comparison to the Brassin cockpit which has a much higher detail level. I recommend this Brassin cockpit set and I would like to thank Eduard for the review sample.
