The Eduard Bf-108 has been around for some time and recently re-released. This little gem of a kit is a fun build and a very nice model.

There are limitations to things that you can do in plastic. In this instance the fine trailing edge of the prop blade can't get be thinned enough. Well resin allows you to do a lot of things that plastic won't. That is where this resin prop from Brassin comes in.

Packaged in a vacuformed container this set contains two pieces of resin. The resin is cast in light grey resin with no defects noted. The parts are the actual propeller blade and the nose cap. The key is the way Eduard casts their parts. I've found it to be very easy to remove and clean up.

There is also a sheet of decals for the prop blade logos.

The set is simple to add just drill a 2mm hole in the kit back plate and add the prop by threading the nose cap through the prop.

Simple, relatively inexpensive, realistically thin, beautifully cast what more do you need? Another great product from Eduard in their Brassin range.

Highly recommended
