Maestro Models Conversions is very focused on the Swedish jets including the Draken and this set is another fine example of the products they have.  This set is made by Eduard for  Maestro Models Conversions, so you know you are getting the best quality photo etch on the market and the painting is amazingly fine and accurate.  Certain parts need to be bent and for those there are tiny connection points at the bend areas to make the bending easy and predictable.

The instructions are clear and include 2 pages of colored line drawings (Eduard instruction sheets) to help you with the installation of these pre-painted detail parts.  

If you're building the 1/72 Hasegawa S35E Draken, then this set will give you added detail for very little effort.  It is definitely worth picking up one of these sets for your next 1/72 S35E Draken.
