This latest release from SBS Model features a complete resin cockpit for the A-37 Dragonfly from Academy.  This is a multi-media set that includes resin parts, photo etch parts and an acetate instrument panel.

This cockpit set includes the following:

  • Resin cockpit tub and 2 ejection seats

  • Instrument panel in resin with separate instrument panel coaming

  • Acetate panels for the instrument panel

  • Photo Etch panels for the instrument panel

  • Photo Etch Engine intake and exhaust covers.

  • Photo etch detail parts including canopy mirrors, canopy frames, small cockpit detail items and much more

  • The seat belts are molded on the resin seats.

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  You can't see it very well in the photos, but the consoles beside the seats have raised detail (switches etc).  The seatbelts are full of detail including the very realistic looking seatbelts.

This is a very nicely done cockpit set and covers the critical areas that show on a  finished model.  This would be a notable improvement over the kit cockpit.

You can purchase these and other fine resin detail items directly from SBS Model or from the many retailers that carry their products.
