There are 5 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.

The folks at Eduard put quite a bit of thought in this set to capture all the tiny little fine details on the exterior of the H-34 and adding this set will greatly enhance the exterior detail with fine detail that makes a super detailed model stand out.  The prepainted cockpit detailing will take the cockpit up to a very pleasing level of detail with minimum effort.  The details on this set even include a tiny tiny gun sight for the side gunners machine gun and the screens over the nose will make a vast difference in detail once installed.  You do not get seatbelts in this set but you can buy prepainted seatbelts in the Eduard set FE 1031.

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