Master Details has turned out a new release, also for Hasegawa's 1/32 Bf 109G kit. This set takes the nice work provided by Hasegawa to the next level in accuracy.
This set consists of replacement wing flaps and the inboard split wing flap sections that also regulate the radiator air flow.
This set compliments the Cockpit Interior Set (reviewed here), exterior 'Maximum Detail Set (reviewed here), and Landing Gear Set (reviewed here). Between these sets, you've taken Hasegawa's beautifully executed kit and added an AMS modeler's dream of detail, all without much muss or fuss.
The instructions clearly show where everything goes and are nicely rendered. The quality of the castings in my set is nice - and they're drop-in replacements for the kit parts. What is the difference? These parts add end details and actuator details missing from the styrene parts.
As always, working with resin parts is not very different from styrene except that you can only really use cyanoacrylate adhesives to assemble resin parts or to add them to styrene assemblies.
This set will really set off the Hasegawa 1/32 Bf 109F/G kit, and when combined with Master Details' other sets, will help you create a masterpiece.
My sincere thanks to Master Details (http://www.masterdetails.com) for this review sample!
