This pre-painted photo etch detail set from Eduard is part of the Zoom series of photo etch sets and is available directly from Eduard Model Accessories. This is a cockpit detail set designed for the 1/32 Trumpeter F6F-3 Hellcat. The parts include some pre-painted parts for the instrument panel, side consoles etc.
There are pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow. You will be required to cut away detail on the kit parts to fit these photo etched parts, but this is indicated on the instruction sheets.
You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process. They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.
This set is full of glorious pre-paint details that will do wonders to detail the cockpit on your F6F-3 Hellcat. Seatbelts are not included in this set but you can buy those from Eduard.
You can buy this pre-painted photo etch detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
