Eduard’s new releases for March include this new tool ProfiPack Edition of the Wolseley Viper-powered S.E.5a in 1/48 scale.
The kit includes two plastic sprues, photoetched and clear plastic detail parts, and Cartograf decals with five marking options for British and American machines.
The Viper engine was produced by Wolseley Motors, Ltd. as an improved version of the popular Hispano-Suiza engine, offering an increased compression ratio and a second oil pump which resulted in increased RPM and horsepower. Eduard has also created a new tool 1/48 kit representing the Hisso-powered variant which will be available in Royal Class and ProfiPACK editions. These kits are currently slated for release in May and August, respectively.
