Eduard from the Czech Republic is easily the most prolific producer of aftermarket details. Period. Their series of photo-etched detail sets have brought additional fidelity to otherwise bland subjects, and have taken even the best-produced models and kicked them up a notch or two with details that cannot be produced with injection-molded plastic.
In this release, Eduard has produced the first set of pilot restraints for their recent 1/48 scale SSW D.III kit out of their new printed fabric process. This set provides pre-colored restraints dye-cut from fabric along with a set of photo-etch parts for the buckles and hardware.
This is option to provide a more realistic look in the cockpit of your SSW D.III and will make any AMS modeler happy!
Recommended for experienced modelers!
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
