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 AccessoriesThis is a seatbelt detail set designed for the 1/48 Kitty Hawk Su-27UB.  The parts include pre-painted seatbelts for the 2 seats along with ejection seat handles and the painted photo etch padding for behind the pilot.  

There is 1 page 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.

These seatbelts along with the Eduard Su-27UB pre-painted photo etch cockpit set will give you a stunning cockpit full of beautifully painted detail.

You can buy this pre-painted photo etch detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
