Eduard Fw 190A-8 Detail Set (for the Eduard kit)
1:48 Scale

A little while back, we reviewed Eduard’s new Fw 190A-8 (which you can find HERE) and we really liked it.  Eduard of course produces a slew of diverse detail sets for their kits, and here, we take a look at a photoetched metal set for this Butcherbird.
This set contains 49 parts on one fret.  It provides various additional details to add to your 1:48 scale Eduard Fw 190.  The most conspicuous of which are the replacement PE main gear doors, and this set provides separate parts for both interior and exterior surfaces.  They are far superior in detail and scale thickness than the kit’s plastic gear doors.

Additionally, there are other multiple gear well wall details, wiring bundles, main gear brake lines, gear retraction arm details, and a few nice details for the cockpit, windscreen, and canopy.  As is expected, these PE parts are elegantly designed and manufactured with great precision.  You really can’t go wrong.

We extend our sincere thanks to Eduard for the review sample. You can visit them on the web at and on Facebook at
