Recently, Airfix has upped its game with the release of several 1/72 scale aircraft kits with new tooling and featuring excellent detail. One such kit is their Hawker Typhoon Mk Ib. Despite Airfix's excellent out-of-box detail, aftermarket detail manufacturers have tossed their hats into the ring to make an excellent kit even better.

Among them is Eduard with it's set of photoetched landing flaps. Consisting of a single fret of photoetched brass, the set includes the movable surface areas as well as the stationary wing-side structural elements. Rib and rivet detail is crisp and delicate. Instructions are visual, succinct, and clearly presented.

Typical of Eduard products, fidelity of detail is exceptional. Some care and experience working with PE are recommended for this set, making it most suitable for intermediate and experience modelers. Highly recommend this set of flaps for builders wanting to further detail their Typhoons.

Thanks to Eduard for the sample parts and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review.
