FirstLook

 

Eduard has expanded their range of accessories with a multimedia SPACE upgrade set for GWH's 1/32 scale P-40B Tomahawk kit. This will also be suitable for the GWH Hawk 75 kit.

 

This SPACE set comprises 3D printed decals for the instrument panel, switch panels and placards, plus photo-etched parts for the half-tone harness straps and throttles.

 

 

I used a couple of SPACE sets recently and I was very pleased with the results.

I found that the 3D decals barely needed to be wet at all before they would slide - or sometimes fall - off the backing sheet. I used Gator’s Grip acrylic glue to secure the 3D printed decals to the plastic kit parts.

Detailed instructions are included.

 

Conclusion

 

This SPACE set offers an alternative to the plastic parts as supplied in the GWH kits. It will result in a well-detailed instrument panel and harness straps.

The extra detail is even more appreciated in this large scale.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
