There are 2 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  The instructions also include painting instructions.  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 pre-painted parts such as the multi-layered instrument panel are stunning as is the side consoles.  This set will make it very easy for anyoen to do some serious detail in the cockpit of the 1/48 Airfix Lightning F.2A.  This set does not include seatbelts.

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