Reviewed by: Dave Morrissette, IPMS# 33653
Scale: 1/32
Company: Eduard

The AIM-4D was the first operational guided missile in the USAF and entered service in 1956. Its limited maneuverability and non-proximity fuse made it ineffective against fast turning fighters and it saw limited duty due to those shortcomings. Eduard has released an excellent multimedia kit of these missiles in their Brassin line in 1/32nd scale. Inside the package, there are parts for four complete missiles. There are four well cast missiles bodies, four seeker head covers, four clear lenses and a small fret of PE for detailing the engine section. There is also a nice set of markings for the one-color scheme.

Eduard's latest addition to the Brassin line of resin aftermarket pieces for 1/32 scale jet aircraft is a set of two AIM-120C AMRAAM medium-range missile. The C version of this missile started making operational use in 1996. That means this missile is appropriate for jets past 1996. It featured extended range and homing improvements over the A/B version. Each box contains parts for two missiles with the option of making a training or tactical version. Inside the package, you'll find 26 pieces of perfectly cast resin with options of two different heads and two different motor sections. There are also decals included for both versions.

So, first decision- tactical or training. Use the following parts for the one you choose:

EVEN more THANKS VERY MUCH to our friends at Eduard in Czechoslovakia!

When I received the box , I knew what I was getting. The review will be four separate tomes to cover the Over tree kit, the wheel set, and the over tree stencil decal set.

EVEN more THANKS VERY MUCH to our friends at Eduard in Czechoslovakia!, and Phil and John in the specialized shipping to reviewers business.

This review is for the resin wheel and tire assembly (plus masks) designed for the early version of the Tempest V. Superb detail, Manufacturer info on the tire wall, inflation stem peeking out from one of the cooling vents, and detail on the brake cover plate on the back. Follow my instructions for success: (BTW, I cleaned off the wheels with Blech white to remove any mold release, and used Duplicolor(r) brand flat black primer in a large spray can; this ensured I had NO problem with paint adhesion over resin).
