FirstLook

 

Arriving in the familiar clear sleeve with a black backing sheet and card backing with a small instruction sheet to help locate the parts, this set provides two resin blocks containing a floor with integral seat and panel, a radio, main wheels, and exposed cylinder heads. These are all very finely cast with only a couple of truly tiny air bubbles.

 

 

The PE fret contains two sets of floor enhancements, side window frames, seatbelts, instrument panels, upper window braces  and rudders for the floatplane version. These will certainly increase the accuracy of your model as these parts tend to be crudely moulded in plastic.

 

 

Finally there is as sheet of clear film with the outline of the windows drawn on for you to cut out and attach to the PE frames.

 

 

The single page B&W instruction sheet clearly illustrates where each part goes. No colour notes are provided.

This is a package that comes recommended to any modeller who has this kit as it will enhance many of the weaknesses of plastic mouldings.

Thanks to Brengun for the review sample.
