There are 2 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.

I've always enjoyed seeing the delicate nature of these radar systems used by the Luftwaffe during WW2.  This is a straight forward set that should look great once installed.

This is a well thought out photo etch detail set and will give you excellent cockpit detail with minimal effort.

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