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 mostly a cockpit detail set designed for the 1/72 Great Wall Hobby F-14D.  The parts include some pre-painted parts for the instrument panel, side consoles, rudder pedals, seat belts etc.  You also get a few parts for exterior parts for the airbrakes and the interior of the exhausts.

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.

I'm impressed by this set because it includes seat belts and exhaust turbine parts and the parts to detail the airbrake to pose it in the open position.  Of course you also get amazing pre-painted parts for the cockpit instrument panels and side consoles and ejection seats handles and more.  This is quite the comprehensive set and will provide your 1/72 F-14 with outstanding level of detail.

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