Colour photo-etched parts and instructions

Review Type: FirstLook
Advantages: A great range of nicely coloured panels and detail parts. Fret attachments are fine and instructions clear.
Disadvantages: None noted apart from the tiny size of some levers that will require care in moving from the fret.
Recommendation: This is a useful set of etched parts to really enhance your night-fighter variant of this aircraft. Recommended.

FirstLook

 

Designed for the recent Flyhawk kit, but I cannot see why much of the fret could not be used on the Hasegawa or even the ancient Airfix or Hawk kits. The fret comes in the familiar clear sleeve with a card backing and includes a double-sided A4 instruction sheet that clearly shows where each part goes and which areas need to be removed before part application.

 

 

It is a 70x40mm precoloured fret that provides a large number of interior details for instrument and radio panels, seat belts, knobs and bobs as well as some fine details for the mg. mounting at the rear of the cockpit. Some of the parts will severely test the eyesight and manual dexterity of old farts like me!!

 

 

Conclusion

 

These coloured frets certainly bring an interior to life and are certainly recommended to any modeller who wants to spruce up their model, especially if the canopy is left open. The coloured panels look particularly good.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
