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 detail set designed for the 1/32 Revell Me 262A.  The parts include some pre-painted parts for the instrument panel, side consoles etc.  You also get unpainted parts to add further detail.

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 pre-painted photo etch set really takes the cockpit to a whole new level with the multi-layered instrument panel and side consoles.  The gun sight gets upgraded with acetate for the glass and photo etch mount for the glass and other parts.  The seat gets added bracing etc and a great set of rudder pedals is included with the leather straps to secure the pilots shoes.  You get handles for the canopy (be careful CA glue fumes fogs clear styrene but Future coated canopies do not fog or just use Future overnight as a slow drying glue).  A beautiful set of pre-painted seat belts are available separately using Eduard set 33241.  I touched on some of the highlights of this pre-painted photo etch set and as you can see by the above photos it is well worth using the big Revel Me 262.

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