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 a cockpit and exterior detail set designed for the 1/72 Hobby Boss A-4F.  The parts include some pre-painted parts for the instrument panel, seatbelts, side consoles  etc.  You also get exterior parts for wheels and nose gear, nose landing gear bay, engine exhaust, airbrake, main gear and main gear bays, weapons pylons, drop tank, flaps.  You also get a boarding ladder.

There are 6 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.

This is a very comprehensive set and I am pleased to see the addition of seat belts and a crew boarding ladder.

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