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 is a massive array of parts that will combine to add quite the increased level of detail to many areas of the exterior of the B-17G.

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