Master Details has turned out another super-detailed cockpit set, this time for the Revell 1/32 He 111. This set is a mixture of resin and white metal parts, 97 parts in total to build up this front office.
As you can see in the images to the right, the set starts off with the cockpit flight deck, aft bulkhead, sidewalls, instrument panel, flight control column, and selected control consoles/panels all cast in tan resin. These are supplemented by a large number of tiny white metal parts making up the range of control levers, seat frames, rudder control assemblies, and much more.
What makes this set work is the nicely illustrated three-page instructions which show how these parts are assembled. First you'll need to identify those parts but if you have a magnifier or Optivisor, you'll be able to find what you seek to pull this project together.
The cockpit of the He 111 is very visible inside that greenhouse enclosure and while the stock kit's cockpit is reasonably done, this cockpit set takes that detail up several levels. This set isn't for the average modeler simply because of the significant number of tiny parts and the need for using cyano to assemble them.
Whether you install this set in the Revell 1/32 He 111P released last year or the upcoming 1/32 He 111H, this set will certainly provide lots of excellent detailing to be seen by everyone at a future IPMS contest.
My sincere thanks to Master Details (http://www.masterdetails.com) for this review sample!
