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 mostly a cockpit detail set designed for the 1/72 Hasegawa / Hobby 2000 P-51B/C.  The parts include some pre-painted parts for the multi-layered instrument panel, seatbelts, center consoles, radio, rudder pedals, sidewall details, gun sight with acetate panels for the glass etc.  You also get unpainted parts for the pilot seat, droptank, main landing gear, wings, tail flying surfaces, exterior vents and grills, tail wheel doors.

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.

I'm very impressed with this set with everything it includes in the cockpit as well as the exterior.  And I love the addition of seatbelts in this set.

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