  • cockpit tub with built in side consoles

  • pilot seat

  • resin and photo etch instrument panel with gauges

  • 2 cowling behind the instrument panel below the gun sight for 2 types of gun sights

  • acetate films for gun sight glass

  • armor plate behind pilot head and frame inside canopy

  • photo etch parts to detail cockpit including rudder pedals with foot straps and seatbelts, frame for windshield and more

  • resin parts include the control stick 

There are 6 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  Painting instructions are included in the instructions.

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 cockpit set does an awesome job upgrading the cockpit detail on the Eduard kit.  You get a choice to use either the Revi 16B gunsight or the Revi C/12C gunsight.  There are some small photo etch parts that are use to form controls levers to add a further level of detail to the cockpit.  All combined this cockpit set improves the basic detail on the Eduard kit quite nicely.  It's quite impressive to see this level on detail in 1/72 scale.

You can buy this detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
