Eduard 1/48 Albatros D.V Weekend (8408)

This time we have a chance to talk about Eduard 1/48 Albatros D.V Weekend (8408). Review comes from our older archives, but it is still interesting to see what kit has to offer. Note that we get Weekend Edition, so there are only two markings inside and no other bonuses included. I should also note that plastic itself is not that new and was released under several brands. Packaging is typical, let's open it and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with MiG in Weekend Edition.

We are going to start with first frame which carries mix of various parts. Molding quality looks good and should be easy to work with.

Both fuselage halves come on the second sprue and feature separate tail fin. One-piece wings will make it easier to assemble the model. Note also engine parts which should be visible on the finished build.

Decals sheet is printed in Eduard, so you don't have to worry about quality. It is good to see some cockpit decals included here. Both markings are shown on the photo below.

Assembly manual is typical for this brand. I show all pages in the video-review.

Small Albatros might be an interesting project for modelers who would like to build WW1 aircraft in reasonable size. Plastic is not that new, yes, but it still looks great and should be easy to work on. I wouldn't say that such kit will be a good choice for beginner though, so be sure not to overestimate your own skills. Moreover, this WW1 biplane will require rigging to be copied, and in 1/48 scale it might be a tricky task.


  • Good molding quality
  • Clever parts division
  • Great decals


  • Rigging might be tricky for beginners
