RB Productions has expanded their range of accessories to include several 1/32 scale seat belts.

RB-P32008 is a 1/32 scale set of harness straps for USAAF and USN fighter aircraft. The seat belts are available in either off-white or dark green.

The set includes a small photo-etched set containing buckles and other hardware. The harness straps themselves are supplied in pre-coloured die-cut paper. The paper straps are attached to a backing sheet and may be easily lifted with the tip of a hobby knife. The paper straps are then threaded through the various photo-etched parts to deliver a very convincing result. The brown leather anti-chafing pad is also supplied as a die-cut paper piece.

 

 

Instructions are provided on a small piece of paper with plenty of clear diagrams to ensure accurate assembly.

A keen eye and a steady hand will be needed for some of the folding and threading, but the effort will be well worthwhile in this large scale.

Highly Recommended to experienced modellers.

Thanks to Radu Brinzan for the sample
