[WWI] Eduard SPAD
Sat Dec 6 01:03:00 2003
I have to agree! I can remember when Eduard 1/48th kits first appeared,with
low pressure molds. They were full of flash and basically a venue for their
excellent Photo Etched details. The Retail price was 25.00 US dollars ,plus
more for some of the some of the 2 seaters. Look at the latest molds and
their quality! I have seen Squadron advertise the DII and III for as low as
$14.99 on sale.
Excellent quality for a fair price!
