Check out what's on the cover of the April Squadron flyer for only $134.99. Very nice! Here's a link to the same item in the online catalog: http://www.squadron.com/ItemDetails.asp?item=eur0004

WoW! I would love to have that, but I believe the wife you hit me in the head with a frying pan for spending that much cash on what she would think is a toy. Of course we no better. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Rather have the Hasegawa 1:32 190s plus Eduard photoetch, of course.

Haven't Eagle Editions come up with a resin detail set for either of these kits?

Once you're over 1/48th scale, most photoetch looks a bit...flat. Except for the instrument panels and some of the levers, gimme the resin every time.

True, hoss---I like Eduard's painted instrument panels for any scale. There are a number of resin cockpits for the Hase 1:32 190s---MDC, CMK, yes, I think, Eagle Editions.

Good luck, JSG72!

Lemitov,

Are those difficult to work with? I use PE on my 1/35 scale armor but, even it that scale it can be small and difficult to place. I'm going to built a couple 1/48 a/c (1/32 won't fit on the shelf I'm using) and really liked the look of those painted pit panels.

I use the colored instrument panels on everything from 1:72 to 1:32 aircraft, faustnik. Uh, no kidding about the small ancillary parts being tough to use. I make no claim to be a master, and will cheerfully leave out parts which look the size of salt grains. Some are just insane. I also build 1:700 warships and the photoetch practically requires an electron microscope. Haven't used p/etch on armor yet. Anyway, I recommend the colored instrument panels because they look far better than anything a mere mortal can do. At first I hated the idea of using a machine painted part---seemed to defeat the whole idea of modeling. Then I saw one of them installed on a Hasegawa 1:48 Ki-61 and was blown out the door. That did it for me.

In 1:48 or 1:32 you can fill out skinny p/etch parts by carefully coating them with white paper glue. Works well for 1:350 scale p/etch seamen!

Tell her you're getting TWO 190's for that, it should make all the difference... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
If not, play the "A piece of a REAL 190, it's history Honey!" card. She'll go for that, be sure!

I've always preferred a combination of resin and photoetch. Photoetch works well in 1/72nd scale, but at 1/48th and above, it does seem a bit two dimensional, although some guys can still pull it off with the right paint/wash shadowing.

Ten or fifteen years ago (please don't tell me it's been longer than that), when I first started using the Eduard detail sets, there were a lot of fit problems as well. I can't count the times I'd spend hours putting together a pristine cockpit, only to hear that heartbreaking crunch when I put the fuselage halves together...

All things considered, I prefer to use the resin cockpit side panels and seats with the instrument panel, seatbelts and levers in photoetch. Too much bending and folding of teensy metal bits, only to have them collapse under the pressure of your tweezers while you're waiting for the superglue to take hold can make you crazy.

As for external detailing, unless its' a thin or flat item like paneling or ring and bead gunsights, I'm for a resin set any day.

cheers

My main gripe with resin is that some of the brands persist with using those huge casting plugs which are a royal pain to remove (I am hand-powered, never been a power tool person). I am not a die-hard advocate of either p/etch or resin, and I prefer really nice plastic cockpits like Tamiya's. I am partial to the pre-painted instrument panels---they are absolutely necessary for 1:72 aircraft.
