Eduard Bf109E Royal class kit in 1/48th Part I: The special extras…


The guys at Eduard have scored a bit of a home run with their new 1/48th kit of the Bf-109E kit – it is full of great detail, accurate and is laden with many extras which add to the value and kudos of owning such a special edition kit of such a popular plane. There are heaps of reviews around all saying pretty much the same thing, so we thought that we would show you the kit built so you could get a much better perspective from someone who actually makes it!  First off we thought we would show you the instrument panel in 1/4th scale and then a look at the thermal mug the kit supplies as special extras – these are on show in this review

Eduard 1/48th scale PSP Marsden Matting review

 “Gentlemen, we want you to build a good portable airport. It must be strong, light, simple, fool proof, safe and inexpensive. It must be so simple that it can be laid on any fairly level piece of land with a few days’ work. It must be so fool-proof that if some parts are lost, it will still be useful.
