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.
Here is Eduard's interior detail set for the Kitty Hawk Models 1/48 AH-1Z Viper kit. This set is color-printed photo-etch with self-adhesive backing so you simply press these parts into place in the cockpit and they will stay put without the need for cyano adhesives. Note that some parts may not have the self-adhesive backing and these will require cyano. This set includes detailed instrument panels, side consoles and subpanels which are nicely done and will not require any painting. Likewise the crew restraints and thumb controls on the cyclics and collectives. The kit also provides updated floors and side panels for the front and rear cockpits.
If you want to add some eye-catching realism in your AH-1Z Viper cockpit without the work, this set is just what you're looking for!
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
