There are 2 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 the upper and lower portion of the flaps with all the fine detail you will see on the full sized aircraft.  You will need to cut the flaps off the plastic kit wings and then assemble the ribs for these photos etch flaps before installing these photo etch flaps.  Once assembled and installed, these photo etch flaps will give impressive detail to your 1/72 Hurricane Mk.IIc.

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