First Look

As you know, Eduard produces a wide range of aftermarket detail sets for aircraft, armor, and ship kits. When a new and noteworthy kit is released, Eduard will usually follow within a few months with one or more detail sets to enhance that kit.

F4U-1A Interior Detail Set

In this release, Eduard provides two frets of photo-etched parts. The first fret is color-printed on one side with self-adhesive applied to the back side. This firs set renders the instrument panel, side consoles and control boxes around the cockpit. The second set adds wiring and structural details to the interior of the cockpit which enhance Tamiya's already nice kit.

This is another nice enhancement that will be easy to install in the Tamiya kit and help add additional fidelity to that nice kit. Using this set with the other releases from Eduard will raise the eye-catching details in this kit to a higher level.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
