This pre-painted photo etch detail set from Eduard is part of the Zoom series of photo etch sets and is available directly from Eduard Model AccessoriesThis set focuses on the Soviet / Russian ejection seat handles in 1/72 scale.  The parts include all pre-painted parts and are designed for 4 different ejection seats.  These seats were used in the the MiG-21/PFMiG-21PFM ~ MiG-21bis / MiG-23 / MiG-25 / MiG-27, Su-17, Su-22, Su-25 ~ Su-35 / MiG-31, Yak jet A/C / MiG-29.

There is 1 page 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 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.

I like the look of these ejection seat handles and they will be a great addition to your next 1/72 Russian jet.

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