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.

The MiG-21 is a popular model and this set gives you some excellent detail for the 1/48 MiG-21 F-13 from Trumpeter.  Once installed and painted, this cockpit set will give you some very good cockpit detail.

You can purchase these and other fine resin and photo etch detail items directly from SBS Model or from the many retailers that carry their products.
