Eduard 1/48 Bf 109E-1 Weekend (84158)

This review is dedicated to Eduard 1/48 Bf 109E-1 Weekend (84158). As you can notice, kit is packed into "old styled" blue box, but it is still interesting to take a closer look together. German aircraft doesn't need an extra introduction, we all know and maybe assembled one. Packaging is typical for Eduard - all frames come in several bags. Let's open them and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with great decals set from the same brand.

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

This video will tell you more about PE set for today's model.

On the first frame you will find engine parts and cockpit elements. Yes, there is no mistake and model actually features nicely detailed powerplant.

Next we see wing mechanization and landing gear parts. Molding quality looks fine, but be ready to work with small parts.

Both fuselage halves are molded with tail fin, while cowling comes as single-piece part. Such design should make whole assembly a bit easier.

Wing parts come on the last sprue. External features look great, so it is just a matter of preserving them during painting.

Clear frame comes in the separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks great, but there are no masks as we are checking Weekend Edition set.

Both decals sheet come from Eduard, so printing quality looks great. You can see both markings on the photo below.

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

Today's Bf 109 is not exactly a new plastic, but it still looks great and offers a lot of things out of the box. In my opinion, even this Weekend Edition should be fun to build for all fans of WW2 aviation. Moreover, you can add more by adding some aftermarket here. Of course, it will cost more money, but final result should be worth it.
