- Customer Reviews
Eduard are a Czech based manufacturer famed for the model accessories. They have in the last few years released a successful range of kits.
Their Profipacks contain a kit with several marking options, along with a Colour Zoom etch set, Canopy Mask and a full colour instruction booklet. In addition there are resin wheels, radar pod and 20mm cannon barrels. It is made from injection moulded plastic but is very complex with full engine and cockpit detail. In this kit you get an optional drop tank and bombs. This sort of kit would really suit an advanced modeller, especially those who want to show off their skills in modelling competitions.
There are markings for 5 different planes: 2 from VMF 51, USS Block Island, April 1945; VMF (N) 541, Falalop Island, Ulithi Atoll, May 1945; VMF (N) 543, Le Shima, May 1945 and VMF (N) 542, Yontan, Okinawa, May 1945.
