There are 4 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 1 painted and 1 unpainted photo etch fret to added some impressive detail to the Hobby Boss Intruder.  This set does not include ejection seat handles or seatbelts, but you can get these in the pre-painted set from Eduard FE 1033.  The A-6A Intruder has a big cockpit with plenty of room for added detailing and this set gives you that added fine detailing and the pre-painted instrument panels will definitely complete your cockpit perfectly.

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