This resin set includes:

  • two resin air intakes

  • two photo etch mounting bases for air intakes

There are 2 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  

These air intakes are fitted at the rear of the airframe on the topside exterior of the engine exhaust.  The detailing is a combination of recessed and raised detailing that is exceptionally well done.  Installation will be easy by simply drilling 2 holes for each intake and securing them in place with CA glue.  This will be a very positive improvement over the plastic kit parts.

You can buy this detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
