Eduard 1/48 Sopwith Camel 2F.1 Profipack (82173)

This review is dedicated to Eduard 1/48 Sopwith Camel 2F.1 Profipack (82173). Fresh release comes as yet another version of the famous biplane in popular scale. Profipack means that we will get additional useful things such as PE and masks. Plastic itself is relatively new, so it should be interesting to see what was included into the box this time. Packaging is typical for this brand, so let's open it and take a closer look together.
By the way, here you can read review with another Camel Profipack set.

Watch this video where I show all parts even closer.

If you saw previous releases, you might remember, that this kit is full of alternative parts. It will be important to decide on marking in advance and track the necessary elements.

Engine parts also come in the same fashion. Note also nice details on the cockpit elements for this aircraft.

Fuselage halves and wing parts can be found on the last grey plastic frame. Overall parts design is typical for this type of kit, but note that both fuselage parts are molded without tail fin.

Inside you will find some features, but more things will be added with separately molded plastic parts and PE. Note that top fuselage section is molded as another part.

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

Another traditional bonus - pre-painted PE fret with some parts for the cockpit and exterior. In this scale such thing will be handy for sure.

Decals are printed in Eduard, so you don't have to worry about quality. There are several marking options available, and you can see them on the photo below.

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

New kit looks great out of the box, but we should remember that this is a biplane. Two-wing aircraft might be tricky to build for beginners, so this is definitely something to consider. Moreover, rigging will take some time as well. It is good to see Profipack containing traditional bonuses, and Eduard also offers more in form of Brassin accessories. I recommend to check those, as some might bring noticeable change on such small aircraft. :)
