Anyz continues to amaze me with how they're developing detail solutions for scale cockpits and interiors. Here is one of a number of decal sheets produced by Anyz and printed by Cartograf that address various details. In this set, we have a variety of stitching that you'd find on aircrew restraints, parachute straps, web seating/netting, etc. If you're purchasing a tailored aircrew restraint set, for example, you'd expect the straps to be of the right color and also provide the distinctive stitching along the lengths of the straps as well as the reinforced stitching at the ends or joints. If you are making your own restraints out of foil, tape, whatever, or if you're painting the restraints on a resin ejection seat, you would need some serious skills to replicate the stitching. Those skills are no longer required to achieve a stunning result.
You can see in the image that you can use whatever lengths and styles of stitching decal to replicate those details on your project, as well as the reinforcing sections in various patterns on the lower half of the sheet. Are the stitches on your harness white? No problem, Anyz as a sheet (AN040) for that.
If you want to take your work to the next level, check out this sheet and the other detailing sets produced by Anyz.
My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this review sample!
