This cockpit set includes:

  • pilot seat

  • cockpit floor

  • cockpit sidewalls

  • resin and photo etch instrument panel with gauges printed on acetate 

  • small resin parts including the control stick etc

  • small photos etch parts including seatbelts and cockpit details such as the throttles etc

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  

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 a very well thought out cockpit detail set and is a kit in itself.  This cockpit will greatly enhance the detail of your N1K2-J Shiden-kai from Hasegawa.  

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