My sample arrived in standard blister pack. Inside I found one photo-etch fret, one resin reducer, one resin carter with cylinders, one resin exhaust manifold and the instructions. https://www.eduard.com/out/media/648166.pdf
I began by easily removing the pour blocks from the resin parts. Luckily the resin parts didn’t require a lot of clean up and they fit together very well. The photo-etch parts were a bit more challenging, the push rods were the trickiest part of the construction and could have been engineered to be a little more user friendly. They kept falling off because of the delicate glueing points. When set side by side the Brassin engine is certainly more superior to the kit engine and once painted it really looks the part.
The Bottom Line
If you really want to dress your new Eduard SSW D.III this is a must have, I highly recommend it to the advance modeler.
I would like to thank Eduard, Brassin and IPMS for the opportunity to present this fine product.
