Eduard Brassin wheels for F-4 1/48
The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a tandem two-seat, twin-engined, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor fighter/fighter-bomber. First entering service in 1960, the Phantom continued to form a major part of U.S. military air power throughout the 1970s and 1980s, being gradually replaced by more modern aircraft such as the F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon in the U.S. Air Force; the F-14 Tomcat and F/A-18 Hornet in the U.S. Navy; and the F/A-18 in the U.S. Marine Corps. It remained in use by the U.S. in the reconnaissance and Wild Weasel roles in the 1991 Gulf War, finally leaving service in 1996.
This month I have received two new Eduard Brassin products:
648014 F-4 J/N wheels 1/48 http://www.eduard.cz/products/card.php?id_product=6673
648015 F-4 S wheels 1/48 http://www.eduard.cz/products/card.php?id_product=6674
Both sets come packed in beautiful Eduard blister packs and they include:
- 4 super-detailed resin wheels
- Includes 6 brakes as bonus!
- Photo-etched details
- Express mask
Wheels are beautifully molded in resin and with outstanding level of details. Small photo-etched fret contains brake installations and they are spot-on. Small masks are also provided for precise painting the wheels. These wheels look great and add more realistic look to Hasegawa F-4 kit.
New Eduard Brassin line has truly established itself among modeling community as the best combination of resin and photo-etched parts and masks for precise painting available on the market. These products are highly recommended!
