BUSY BEE

EMIL ACES

Eduard provides a bumper crop of Bf 109Es flown by high-scoring pilots in this splendid supplement to its impressive 1/48 kits.

PIN-POINT STRIKE

Eduard has scaled down its 1000lb JDAM in this set of eight munitions with smooth uncoated bomb bodies, making them appropriate for non-maritime aircraft worldwide, including Tornado IDS, F-16, F-22 and F-35.

NIGHT-FIGHTER ADDITIONS

Comprising just a single photoetched steel fret, Eduard’s upgrade for ICM’s 1/48 Junkers Ju 88C-6 night-fighter is nonetheless effective.

FIRE AND FORGET

'EZ' EJ UPGRADES

As our build feature Retired Rhino shows, FineMolds’ 1/72 F-4EJ Phantom builds into a splendid model straight from the box, but those seeking refinement will appreciate Eduard’s photo-etched metal upgrade.

LASER PRECISION

Laser-guided bombs are now de rigueur on many western combat aircraft, yet the provision of this type of ordnance in kits is erratic.

CLIPPED-WING MISSILE

Eduard’s range of aftermarket munitions sets includes this set of AIM-120C AMRAAM with ‘clipped’ wings, allowing for internal carriage.

PATROL BOAT BLING

This is the second upgrade product from Eduard for Revell’s PT-109 kit and concentrates on the craft’s .50 cal machine gun and 20mm Oerlikon armament, with additional fittings for the depth charges, deck and stowage.

ROTARY PUNCH

A common sight on modern Russian rotary-winged assets, the B8V20 replaced the earlier UB-57-32 and features a characteristic ‘blunt’ front section of rocket tubes; Eduard’s neat resin and photo-etched (PE) brass set provides four such pods, enough for a full helicopter load.
