The LööK range is a new set of resin instrument panels from Eduard, so we take a quick look at the Fw 190A-5 instrument panel in 1/32nd.

Hi Andy

Thanks for the review on this. Eduard are certainly setting their stall on this new range. It's really intriguing... so, it's actually cast in RLM 66 coloured resin? I hadn't expected that (I assumed Eduard were pre-painting everything).

As with any pre-coloured aftermarket cockpit upgrade, the crunch point is how well it matches the paint you're using for the rest of the "office" (Of course, you can always argue slightly different coloured pre-painted sub-assemblies on the real thing. ).

All the best

Rowan

Hi Rowan,

Would you believe I haven't got RLM 66 in any of my paints, but comparing it too colour chips on the web, its very close. Bit of dry brushing with the colour your using would help match things up. Also once its in the cockpit, its all dark anyway lol.

The belts don't do it for me, but instrument panels in this scale "make" a build (or "break" it). Could be very helpful.
