Master Details is a relatively new hobby company who previously released a fantastic new figure for 1/32 modern aircraft modelers. This first offering is literally the "Swiss Army Knife" of pilot figures.

Well, Master Details has re-released their superdetailed cockpit interior to dress up the Hasegawa 1/32 Bf 109G. The instructions also talk you through backdating the cockpit should you want to render the Bf 109F. This set compliments the exterior 'Maximum Detail Set (reviewed here), Detailed Flap Set (reviewed here) and Landing Gear Set (reviewed here).

The set contains around 30 parts cast in white resin and white metal, and provides literally all of the cockpit interior in very high fidelity. The set includes new sidewalls, cockpit floor, forward bulkhead (visible through the foot wells), instrument panel, stick, flare gun, rudder pedals, gunsight, and lots more!

The set provides two rear bulkheads. One has the pilot's seat with parachute and straps molded in place (very nicely, I might add) while the other is the bare seatback and a separate seat pan sans parachute. Since these aircraft were usually 'cocked' and ready to launch, it wasn't unusual to have the parachute ready to go in the cockpit to expedite take-off after the sirens went off.

You can see from the instruction sheet just how the cockpits go together and install into the Hasegawa kit. The minor adjustments to backdate the set to the F-model is also clearly laid out. I like the color illustration as it provides a great visual reference for cockpit colors which are covered in-depth in Werner Floyd's Hasegawa Bf-109G How-To video reviewed previously.

When you consider the details and the fine casting in this set, then look at the MSRP of less than $25, this is quite a bargain!

My sincere thanks to Master Details (http://www.masterdetails.com) for this review sample!
