Review Type:

First Look.

Advantages:

Beautifully etched parts, and clear instructions.

Disadvantages:

Flat nature of the internal frames .

Conclusion:

If this is your scale and interest area then this is a highly recommended fret that enhances the Revell kit and will probably fit the Airfix one as well.

FirstLook

 

Designed to enhance the Revell kit, this 70x50mm fret plus instrument panel clear sheet will allow the modeller to super-detail that part of the kit that lacks much detail. It comes in the familiar clear sleeve with a black card backing.

A single A5 sheet clearly shows the construction and location of the parts that will produce a very nice instrument panel but mainly to replace the over-scale radar aerials that characterise this variant. Parts also add to the undercarriage and doors. I can’t see why these parts could not be used to improve/convert the Airfix kit either but some dry-testing will be required. The fret is finely etched and the nubs connecting parts to the sheet are very fine and should be a doddle to cut and clean up. 

 

 

The only issue would be the flat surfaces of the framework that would benefit with a coat of PVA or thick paint to make them appear more rounded . 

All-in-all, a very useful set that should meet the needs of a super-detailer in 1/72, and as such comes highly recommended.

Thanks to Brengun for the review sample.
