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 is mostly a cockpit detail set designed for the 1/48 Kinetic F-104G late.  The parts include some pre-painted parts for the instrument panel, ejection seat stickers, side consoles, canopy mirrors etc.  You also get a few parts for for areas beyond the cockpit.

There are 3 pages 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 cut away detail on the kit parts to fit these photo etched parts, but this is indicated on the instruction sheets.

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 detail set is loaded with some excellent pre-painted detail items, which I think will do a much better job detailing the cockpit rather than hand painting the cockpit parts.  This set does not include seat belts but you can buy a pre-painted seat belt set from Eduard separately.  This set will do an excellent job super detailing the cockpit on your next F-104G late Starfighter.

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