Eduard SE.5a guns – Resin & PE Set

Produced in time with the excellent Eduard 1/48 SE.5A, this resin and PE extra parts combo is of the same quality as the kit it supports. The set focusses on the SE.5As main armament; the fixed forward-firing .303in Vickers machine gun mounted on the upper forward fuselage and the Foster rail mounted .303in Lewis machine gun mounted on the upper wing. Starting with the fuselage mounted Vickers, the entire gun is replaced by this resin version complete with a PE sights, flash protector and even a PE cocking handle. The upper Lewis gets a similar treatment starting with extra magazines for the storage box, which is also replaced by PE, located directly in front of the pilot above the instruments; perfectly handy in a fight but not so when it came to a forced landing. The gun itself receives a completely new Foster mounting, a new machine gun complete with PE sights, rear grip handle and trigger guard. A clear, colour instruction booklet is also supplied and both PE and Resin parts are securely packed within a sealed, clear plastic box. For a little over £5, this really is a good value for money set. 

Thanks very much to Eduard for our sample which is available from all major outlets and online model stores.
