Messerschmitt Me 262B Big Sin
Last year, Revell released Messerschmitt Me 262B in 1/32 scale as a brand new kit. The kit is big and so detailed but as we know, details are never enough. Eduard has followed it and made various updates. Regular with their policy, Eduard released all their updates for the Me 262B in one big set, called BIG ED and with stock code BIG3373.
The set is simply packed in a cardboard envelope with simple text for the product for which it is dedicated. Inside the package is one etched set for exterior, one etched set for interior, steel seat belts and quick mask for canopy as well as wheels. To make a complete upgrade, I have also got sample wheels for this kit in the Brassin series.
The same kit of the Me 262 is quite complicated and has a lot of parts so needs time to assembly it and during the assembly it is important to replace some of the original parts with parts from Eduard sets. Note that the cockpit set includes pre painted elements and just some parts need to be painted. Most details are focused on the seat as well instrument consoles and panels. Due to the scale, all elements are included and they are so easy to mount it inside. Seat belts are provided separately and they are nice and easy to do. The steel has excellent working properties and when it is painted, top results are achieved fast. The Me 262 kit has many panels open, or can be opened at will and Eduard do make a very good job there by providing inner structures, small elements, replacement parts as well as new parts. This set for exterior is not painted so you need to paint it during the regular kit assembly.
Brassin wheels are little masterpieces with all details included. The set includes wheel parts as well as a protecting mask (which i did not use). Work is more than simple, cut away from base, paint it, merge together and put on plastic kit landing gear strut.
