Anyz continues to expand its range of detailing options with two new photo-etched sets. Here is the Universal Seat Belt Buckles for modern jets set, AN056 is for 1/32 and AN057 is for 1/48 subjects. This set reminds me of the old Waldron sets that provided buckles so you can add missing or replace inaccurate details on your ejection seats. If you're making the belts and harnesses as well, Anyz also produces a decal set to replicate the stitching in the straps as well.
The AN056 and AN057 are identical in parts layout, just different in size/scale. While you can wait for one of the aftermarket houses to produce the crew restraints for the subject(s) you're building, sets like these allow you to get out ahead of other modelers by going 'old school' and doing your own.
My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this review sample!
