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 instrument panel, cockpit floors with rivet detail, pilot seat, rudder pedals, seatbelts, armor behind pilot seat, side wall details, gun sight with acetate panels for the glass,  etc.  You also get a few parts for 3 landing gear areas, drop tanks details, wing details etc.

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 am particularly impressed by this set and the fact it includes pre-painted seatbelts is a huge bonus.  The instrument panel and other cockpit details look quite nice.

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