Tempest Mk. V Exhaust Stacks

Tempest Mk. V Exhaust Stacks
Reviewed by: Jarrod Booth, IPMS# 44739
Scale: 1/48
Company: Eduard

This a simple resin set that replaces the exhaust stacks on Eduard's new Tempest Mk V kit.

The plastic parts supplied in the kit feature solid exhaust pipes that will need to have the ends either painted black or, as I typically do, hollowed out to show depth.

The resin exhausts feature nice weld seam detail and are hollowed out. They are a drop in replacement for the plastic parts. A razor saw is best used to remove the resin pour block, painting and a quick sanding readies the exhaust to be slotted into the nose cowl.

Thank you to Eduard and the IPMS for the chance to review another fantastic release from Eduard.

Thank you to the Eduard Company for sending this detail set for review, it is always a pleasure to see what your new products bring to the scale modeling world. Thank you also to the IPMS Reviewer Corps staff members who do the hard work in getting us modeling products to review, the reviews posted, and the news spread to the world.

The photoetch frets arrived in excellent shape in a sealed (and reseal-able!) plastic package with the distinctive Eduard knight logo. A color instruction sheet is included in the package, and Eduard also has the same instruction sheet available for download on the product page. I really appreciate having the electronic PDF format to mark up on my computer, not to mention the ability to easily enlarge for my aging eyeballs. The required kit modifications are clearly indicated. I had no difficulties at all building up the larger PE parts and attaching them to the kit. Eduard has well-placed and designed fold lines to assist with the build-up. The etched fold lines helped very much with precise folding.

The photoetch frets arrived in excellent shape in an easily opened re-sealable plastic package with the distinctive Eduard knight logo. The frets are color-laminated for the instrument panels and relief-etched polished brass for other details. The parts are crisply executed. Color instruction sheets are included in the package, and Eduard has the same instruction sheets available for download on the product page. I really appreciate having the electronic PDF format to mark up on my computer, especially the ability to enlarge the details on my computer screen.
