This photo etch detail set available directly from Eduard Model AccessoriesThis is a fascinating detail set designed for the 1/72 Special Hobby Sunderland Mk.

There are 4 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.

It is quite fascinating that the Sunderland Mk. II has maintenance platforms partially built into the wings for regular engine maintenance, but considering the size of this aircraft, it does make good sense.

Eduard also has interior and bomb bay sets for the 1/72 Special Hobby Sunderland Mk. II.

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