This pre-painted photo etch detail set from Eduard is part of the Zoom series of photo etch sets and is available directly from Sprue Bros. This is mostly a cockpit detail set designed for the 1/72 Hasegawa P2V-7 Neptune. The parts include some pre-painted parts for the instrument panel, side consoles, seat belts etc. You also get a few parts for wheels and landing gear and exterior of the fuselage.
There are 3 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 set includes some critical parts and the fact they are pre-painted makes it all so much easier to use.
You can buy this pre-painted photo etch detail set and thousands of other items directly from the Sprue Brothers Models site. They are famous for their prompt service.
