Eduard 1/48 Bf 110C Profipack (8209)

This time we are going to talk about Eduard 1/48 Bf 110C Profipack (8209). It is important to say that release comes as new boxing of the well-known plastic which was released some time ago. Nevertheless, there are still no rivals on the market and this will be your main choice in case you would like to have a nice model of the twin-engined German aircraft. Moreover, there are some aftermarket accessories available, so some modelers can invest into a bit more details. Today's Profipack means that you will find PE and masks included into standard package, what is also cool. Let's open this box and check everything together.

First frame is literally filled with various small parts. This is a good reminder that 1/48 scale doesn't mean bigger parts, and you will have to work with tweezers here.

Landing gear parts look fine out of the box. Nevertheless, I would recommend to find metal replacement, especially if you plan to add some accessories.

Both engine gondolas should be glued out of two halves. There are guiding pins inside which should help you with assembly.

Both fuselage halves can be found on the next sprue. Note that nose section is separate here, while underfuselage fuel tank is a one-piece part.

Cockpit features a lot of things molded in plastic. You can expect even more items as we are checking Profipack today and PE will come handy.

Wing design is typical for such model. Flaps are premolded, so you won't be able to drop them on your aircraft.

Unusual thing here is two PE frets for one model. Both will come handy for fine features on your model.

Clear frames are packed into separate plastic bags. Overall molding quality looks great and should be easy to install.

Moreover, manufacturer offers an option to open the canopy on your model.

Eduard also included pre-cut masks which should help you with nice paintwork on clear parts.

Both decals sheets are printed in Eduard, so overall quality looks fine. There are several markings, which you can see on the photo below. Don't forget that those decals can be applied in two ways - with or without cover film.

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

New big Bf 110C should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it will look great once assembled and painted. Nevertheless, one should remember that this is definitely not the right kit for beginners. Twin-engine aircraft kits are more suitable for experienced modelers who will know what to do. Overall quality still looks nice even though the plastic itself is not exactly fresh. There is still a huge potential for additional details, so some modelers will have something to play with. :)
