Base Kit: HK Models 1/32 B-25H/J
I feel I have to start this review by saying that Eduard, as always, has come out with a fine product and once again has set the bar. I cannot remember any product from Eduard that I reviewed that had nothing but the best to say about it. Minute flaws, yes, but overall always highly recommended.
However, I did have to say that HK did their homework, also. With Eduard, the details are flawless, fit perfectly, and are well-engineered, but, so are HK’s. The detail on both sets are so close that it makes it impossible to say if this upgrade is really worth doing. I’m not talking about the cost. With Eduard one always gets his money’s worth by way of fit and quality. I’m talking about how close these parts are to one another with respect to detail and accuracy. Even the tire lettering on both sets is spot-on. Eduard’s wheels, as well as HK’s, also fit on Scale Aircraft Conversions’ landing gear, which, I feel, is a total necessity due to all the weight I had to use not to make the B-25 a tail-sitter.
