This pre-painted photo etch set from Maestro Models Conversions features interior and exterior photo etch details for the Seversky P-35 SwAF J9 from Special Hobby.  It is possible some or all of this set could be used on other P-35 kits as well.  

This detail set includes:

  • instrument panels in 2 layers

  • rudder pedals

  • throttle control

  • seatbelts

  • cockpit placards

  • huge selection of ribbed flight control parts 

  • and more

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 neat set to be sure, it will permit you to dress up the cockpit with plenty of beautifully done pre-paint detailing.  But an equally stunning part of this set are the endless pieces for opening up the control surfaces and showing off all that delicate ribbing detail as well as all the rivet detail.  

You can purchase this and other fine resin and photo etch detail items as well as decals directly from Maestro Models Conversions or from the many retailers that carry their products.
