Brengun Models is a scale model and detailing parts manufacturer located in the Czech Republic. Their lines include limited production run multi-media kits and exquisitely detailed photo-etched, turned brass and white metal replacement parts for aircraft in the most commonly produced scales. They have a knack for producing interesting, off-beat and little known subjects.

Brengun has produced a photoetched stainless steel detailing set for the already very nicely appointed 1/32 Hasegawa Fw-190 D-9 kit. The set is packaged in a sealed-fold clear plastic sleeve. There are two plates of photoetch and a clear acetate sheet of instruments dials included. Plate one includes the rear cockpit cover, windscreen frame, gunsight, large instrument panel and bezels. Plate two includes the seat, harnesses, smaller instrument panel, side instrument panels, rudder pedals, bulkheads, trim wheel, levers and other assorted bits.

The instructions consist of exploded view illustrations of each assembly. While not foolproof, they provide experienced modelers with the general assembly sequencing. Those new to photoetch may have trouble (as did I) without more detailed folding sequencing. For example, I tried to assemble the seat parts, and had to re-fold the bottom components which I had initially bent in the wrong direction. The parts separated at the fold lines during the re-do, which will necessitate some soldering to complete now.

Some cautionary advice: for those without basic modeling experience, use CA ("superglue") sparingly, or epoxy glues to assemble and attach these parts to your plastic kit, as the usual plastic glues do not react with the metal parts. Some parts will be better assembled by soldering. Painting of the assembly will be necessary, so check your references, and be sure to prime with the appropriate materials that are compatible with your preferred paints.

While not suitable for novice modelers, this is an excellent detailing set that will lend increased realism to the 1/32 Hasegawa Fw-190D-9 in the hands of those with prior photo etch assembly and use experience. These sets can be purchased at the Brengun website above.
