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 Color Photo-Etch Set

In this release, Eduard renders the Sutton harnesses for the pilot and bombardier in color-printed photo-etch which are ready to be installed in the cockpit. This set provides some nice eye-catching details and the color-printing is nicely done. 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!
