Here is information about two new releases from Eagle Editions in their resin EagleParts range:


 

Spinner for 1/32 scale Hasegawa Messerschmitt Bf 109G

 

This 1/32 scale replacement spinner has been designed exclusively for Eagle Editions by master pattern maker Gregg Cooper of ScaleQuest.

This is an accurate new spinner based on photographs and measurements:

  • The taper is corrected with a slight indentation where the front portion of the spinner is attached to the rear portion.

  • The blast tube has been enlarged and emphasised with a flared spinner opening (the blast tube can be shortened to match photo source of desired aircraft subject).

  • The openings for propeller blades are tapered to the rear.

  • A raised data plate for the spinner and backing plate with attachment hole has been added.

  • The forward spinner cap line is also more pronounced.

A drill jig is included to align the propeller shaft opening in the backing plate. Note - a data plate decal is supplied with EagleCals for this scale.

 




Replacement forward cowl for 1/48 scale Focke-Wulf Fw 190D

 

 

This 1/48 scale replacement radiator cowling has been designed exclusively for Eagle Editions by master pattern maker Gregg Cooper of ScaleQuest.

The profile outline in all 1/48th scale Fw 190D-9 kits is too flat. The correct cowl shape has a fuller, airfoil profile. Using measurements and photos from original D-9 cowlings, Eagle Editions has produced a correctly shaped radiator cowling in 1/48th scale.

 



To demonstrate, hold a completed 1/48th model to a good photo of a real D-9 and the difference is obvious, and is especially noticeable when the cowl flaps are closed. Our resin correction kit fixes this problem.

Features include:

  • Complete with radiator, cowling and closed cowl flaps. Use kit open flaps if desired.

  • Visible pins and joint cover plates, both top and bottom. Note: on the real aircraft the cowling halves are held together with small pins which are detailed on our corrected cowl.

  • Correctly closed cowl flaps that taper at the rear.

NOTE; the EP#13-48 cowl correction set will fit Trimaster molds, DML, Dragon, Italeri etc. and Tamiya kits.

Price: $8.00


 

A full review of these items will be undertaken in the coming weeks.

Thanks to Eagle Editions for the information.
