After just completing the 22 year Fw-190 build to deliver an Fw-190A8 Nachjaeger I jumped into the Eduard A-6 kit. Although the DML Fw-190 standup quite well I am blown away by the amount of built-in detail on the Eduard kit.
I bought the Eduard kit on a special they had a few years back, purchased the kit as an Overtrees purchase and the special contained a set of pre-painted photo-etch for the cockpit. Even though the Eduard kit has a BMW801 radial and nose guns I fell into my temptation and bought the Eduard Brassin set for the A-5 which contains engine and guns. The amount of detail in the Brassin set is remarkable and I first set about building these components. Here are a few pictures of the completed engine and the rest of the set painted.
I enjoyed putting together the engine. The way it is designed and the instructions worked quite well. In the previous posts, I talked about building the CMK BMW 801 kit to fit the DML kit and it had a lot more that I would have had to scratch build; the Eduard Brassin has it all.
Next steps are to complete the cockpit and to start putting pieces of the kit together.
