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. When Kitty Hawk released its 1/32 F-86D Sabre Dog kit, Eduard soon followed with several nice enhancement sets. Here's the F-86D Ejection Seat Detail Set, let's take a look:

F-86D Ejection Seat Detail Set

This set consists of one fret of color-printed photo-etched parts. The set provides enhanced seat frame sides, arm rests, foot rests, and corrects the actuator handles. In addition, this set provides detailed seat belts and shoulder harness which will require assembly/threading of the straps through the buckles and hardware. If you prefer, Eduard also has these straps in fabric (set 32836).

This is another nice enhancement that will be easy to install in the Kitty Hawk kit and help add additional fidelity to that nice kit. Using this set with the other releases from Eduard will raise the level of detail in this kit to a higher level.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
