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 1/72 Italeri F-35B.  The parts include painted parts for the instrument panel and seatbelts, side consoles and unpainted parts for the ejection seat side frames, parachute pack, engine exhaust, exterior doors and landing gear parts etc.

There are  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.

The F-35B is a very cool jet and this set focuses on the many areas that will show this added detail very well.  I do like the addition of the pre-painted seat belts and ejection seat handles.  This is a very rounded set and will look good once installed.

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