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.
This set is designed to fit the Weekend edition of Eduard's MiG-21PFM Fishbed F kit. This set provides color-printed instrument panel, side consoles, rear view mirrors, pilot restraints and ejection seat details. The second fret provides the IFF antennae, wing fences, aux intake FOD shields, brake lines, and fuel filler cap.
These photo-etch details provide a nice subtle additional level of detail while the color photo-etch provide some easy to use, eye-popping details in the cockpit.
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
