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 Great Wall Hobby F-15I.  The parts include some pre-painted parts for the instrument panel, seatbelts, side consoles, sidewall details, ejection seat handles, canopy framing etc.  You also get a few parts for airbrake area, weapons clamps for pylons, landing gear bay details, landing gear detail parts, exhausts, radar parts etc.

There are 5 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 set hits all the critical areas and then some.  The multi-layered instrument panel will look awesome once it is assembled and I love the fact seat belts are included.  The cockpit details are plentiful, but the detail items for the rest of the model is also quite comprehensive.  It is amazing what can be done in 1/72.

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