The Product

This was presented to IPMS President Dick Montgomery by Eduard at the 2011 IPMS convention held in August in Omaha as a not yet released item to be submitted for review. I told Dick, "I will do my best to give a complete and honest review."

The base appears to be made of some type of hard plastic with very nice engravings and has what looks to be a date '2001' embossed on the hollowed backside. Measuring 11 5/8" x 15 5/8", this thing is big. It depicts an elevator centered in the wooden deck. The coloring is eye-catching, to say the least, and looks great from a couple feet away.

The Bottom Line

Eduard is a great company and I wish them great success. I love their products and have always recommended them.

My Gratitude

Thank you Dick Montgomery, Eduard, and IPMS.
