Eduard 1/72 Wunderschone Neue Machinen Limited Edition (2142)

Today we are going to talk about Eduard 1/72 Wunderschone Neue Machinen Limited Edition (2142). New release comes as first issue of the F-version plastic in small scale. As you can notice on the boxart, it is designed as Dual Combo, so there are plastic parts for one F-2 aircraft and one F-4 aircraft. Both will also get some additional accessories, which we will see further in the review. I guess aircraft itself doesn't require an extra introduction here. It should be also noted that kit will offer you a choice of 14 marking options. Packaging is typical here, all frames are packed into separate plastic bags. Let's open everything and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with previous E-version profipack.

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

We are going to start with this small frame which carries propeller. As the label suggests, this is the type for Bf 109F-4 Late aircraft.

Next we continue with bigger frame. Here you will find cockpit parts as well as landing gear and some other external elements.

Note that cockpit floor features premolded elements, which would be visible with open canopy. Overall molding quality looks great for this size.

Here you can see sprue with parts for the F-4 version of the aircraft. Overall design looks typical for this scale, and I don't think you will find any surprises here.

Both fuselage halves are designed without tail fin, but with cowling panel. You will have to carefully assemble parts in that area in order to avoid any damage. External features look great for this scale.

F-2 version parts come on the separate frame. Overall design is pretty much the same, so you can even build both models simultaneously.

Wings will have the main difference. Note that external features are the same as on the fuselage and look great.

Inside you will find some cockpit features. More details will be added with help of separate parts and PE.

Clear frame is packed into separate plastic bag. Molding quality looks great, and you can see pre-cut masks on the photo below.

Three PE frets will come handy for both aircraft builds. Those are typical items for Eduard, so you shouldn't worry about some quality issues.

Decals sheets come straight from Eduard. As you remember, we have two aircraft sets, so here you will find all necessary things.

Printing quality looks great, and there is also a segmentation which will make application easier.

As it was mentioned, there are 14 marking options for both aircraft.

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

New set should be already available for purchase. In my opinion it is a great choice for all fans of small scale WW2 aircraft. In one box you will get two models together with all necessary items. Moreover, Eduard offers their Brassin products for those who would like to have even more. Overall quality looks great out of the box, and I think even beginners will be happy to work with this kit. :)
