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 HK Models released its 1/32 beautiful Mosquito B.IV kit, Eduard had several detail sets released at the same time. These include crew restraint sets, interior detail set, and paint masks. Let's take a closer look at the seatbelts set:

Mosquito B.IV Seatbelts Fabric Set

In this release, Eduard renders the Sutton harnesses for the pilot and bombardier in color-printed fabric with the buckles, adjustments, and mounts provided as photo-etched parts that slide right into place. This set provides some nice eye-catching details and the fabric allows for some natural placement over the seats. If you prefer the Eduard fabric seatbelts, they produce this set for the HK Models Mosquito B.IV.

This is another nice enhancement that will be easy to install on the HK Models 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!
