  • photo etch seat belts and many other photo etch parts

There are 4 pages of instructions in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  

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 MiG-29  ejection seat and pilot helmet are loaded with a shocking amount of detail.  Not shown in the photos above is some of the many pre-painted photo etch parts that complete the detail on this ejection seat.
