Eduard’s photo-etched brass landing flaps are designed to fit Airfix’s 1/72 Blenheim Mk.IV, but as the wings of all Blenheims were the same, they will also fit its Mk.I kits.
These aren’t for the novice modeller, as they require much careful bending to form the internal bracing structure, but will make a huge difference to the finished model. The moulded detail on the styrene wings must be removed to allow these replacements to fit, and there are separate inboard and outboard items. Modellers will need to provide lengths of 0.7mm rod or wire for the hinge mechanism, but otherwise everything else is supplied on the single brass fret.
