Here is information about two new releases from Eagle Editions in their resin
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
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.
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.
A full review of these items will be undertaken in the
Thanks to Eagle Editions for the information.
EagleParts accessories are
