This resin set includes:

  • 2 complete engines with separate cylinder heads

  • tubular frames to support engines to plane

  • separate exhausts

  • full engine cowlings with detail on both sides

  • pipes and plumbing and accessories to fully detail these engines

There are 20 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  The instructions also include painting instructions.

You will be required to fold the wire and photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

Make no mistake, each of these engines is a kit in itself with many many parts.  The complicated detailing on these engines requires the engines to be molded from multiple parts to properly render the intricate 3D detail.  Once you add all the plumbing and wiring and accessories, then you will be left with engines truly worthy of the detail level of the 1/32 Tamiya kit.  These engines are truly impressive.

You can buy this detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
