First Look

AMS Resin continues to turn out some nice aftermarket detail sets at reasonable prices. In this latest release, AMS has completely overhauled the Kinetic 1/32 F-86 Sabre's cockpit with a completely new front office nicely cast in gray resin.

Cockpit Replacement for Kinetic F-86 Sabre

This set includes a new cockpit tub, your choice of ejection seats (with or without seat belts/harness), instrument panel, joystick, rear deck (just behind the cockpit tub under the canopy), and sidewall inserts.

Take a look at the photo. The two-piece ejection seat (head rest is molded separately) is beautifully rendered and will look great all by itself in that cockpit. In fact, AMS resin offers the ejection seat separately as set 32010 without seatbelts and 32011 with seatbelts. If you want the detail set without the resin cockpit tub and sidewall inserts, that too is available as set 32012.

Recommended for experienced modelers!

My sincere thanks to AMS Resin for this review sample!
