Eduard 1/48 Tora Tora Tora (11155)

This time we are going to talk about Eduard 1/48 Tora Tora Tora (11155). Kit comes as completely new release from the famous Czech manufacturer. Moreover, it is a Limited Edition release with two models inside. Such package should be interesting for modelers who would like to build a pair of the well-known Japanese fighter aircraft. Packaging is typical, so let's open everything and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with another release from Eduard.

Watch this video-review where I show all parts closer.

We are going to start with the frame which is dedicated to various internal parts.

Engine parts look amazing, and should be easy to work with. Of course, there will be also separate Brassin set to upgrade this element.

Wheel wells should be glued out of separate parts. It would be cool to see metal barrels for machine guns.

Cockpit parts look amazing and should be easy to combine together. Don't forget that we also get PE in the same box.

Again, you can upgrade your cockpit with Brassin set. It will be a bit more complex, so keep this in mind before going for such add-on.

All markings in the set should be assembled with the fuel tank. I also like one-piece propeller with attachment points in the middle.

Fuselage halves come on their own frame. Both are molded together with tail fin, while cowling is separate.

Cowling panels will have be assembled around special template which will help you with alignment.

All those parts feature recessed panel lines and rivets. Such detailing looks quite good and convincing.

Be careful with attachment points on the top of fuselage.

Of course, rudder is separate and comes as one-piece part.

Wing is divided into three large parts with separate ailerons. Note that flaps are molded in and you will have to buy a separate PE set for separate flap. Wing tips hint that it would be possible to copy aircraft with folded parts.

Clear frame comes in the separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks great.

Of course, you can build the open canopy with those parts.

Some parts will stay on the frame, they are clearly suited for future variants coming soon.

Masks sheet comes as handy bonus which will cover the canopy and wheels. They are pre-cut and ready to be used straightaway.

Pre-painted PE fret will be useful for fine details inside and outside. In my opinion we get here all the necessary parts for the nice build.

There are three decals sheets in the box. First two are dedicated to stencils, while the biggest one carries main symbols.

Of course, they are printed in Eduard, so you don't have to worry about printing quality.

Moreover, some of this stuff can be replicated with masks if you will be brave enough.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. You can check all pages in the video-review.

New release should be already available, but I would recommend to hurry if you want to get one. This is a Limited Edition, so I think they will get sold out quickly. As for the plastic kit, Eduard did a great job here, and it would be a nice thing to build. Moreover, you will be able to copy two marking options on two models. Another great thing - huge choice of aftermarket accessories which should help you get even more features in 1/48 scale. Yes, it will require extra money, but final result should be worth it.
