Eduard 1/48 A6M3 Type 32 Profipack (82213)

This article is dedicated to Eduard 1/48 A6M3 Type 32 Profipack (82213). New kit copies another version of the famous Japanese aircraft. It is molded in popular scale and should be interesting for modelers who would like to have their own Zero. Moreover, it is a Profipack, so there are all necessary bonuses inside. Packaging is typical for this brand, let's open it and take a closer look together.

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

First frame is dedicated to new parts which will be used in today's version of the aircraft. Here you can see some of the cockpit bits as well as propeller and landing gear elements.

Next we find more parts for the cockpit and a lot of things for the engine. Original plastic offers surprisingly detailed powerplant, so it might be worth exposing it on the model.

Fuselage halves are molded together with tail fin, but without cowling or rudder. External features include recessed panel lines and rivets.

Wing parts design is typical for such kit. Note that flaps are premolded, and you will have to get the separate set in order to have them in dropped position.

Clear frame comes in the separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks great and should be easy to work with. Masks can be seen on the photo below.

This is a Profipack, so you will get all the traditional bonuses inside - PE fret and masks. PE fret should be useful for fine features in the cockpit.

Two decals sheets are printed in Eduard, so you don't have to worry about possible quality issues. All markings can be seen on the photo below.

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

New aircraft kit should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is a perfect choice for all fans of Japanese Zero. In 1/48 scale it should look impressive even if you choose to build out of the box project. Keep in mind that Eduard also offers a huge choice of various accessories, which might come handy for a detailed build. Of course, it will require some extra investment, but such thing will be worth it. We will review those sets in the separate videos, so stay tuned. :)
