This cockpit set include:
  • cockpit tub and 1 ejection seat

  • instrument panel and coaming

  • clear acetate for instrument panel and HUD glass

  • 2 cockpit sidewalls

  • small resin parts including a control stick

  • photo etch sheet that includes seatbelts, HUD frame, canopy mirrors, ejection seat handles and so much more.

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 is quite the nice multi-media cockpit set and will provide you with exceptional detail that will be a big improvement over the plastic kit parts.  

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