Eduard from the Czech Republic is easily the most prolific producer of aftermarket details. Period. Their series of photo-etched detail sets have brought additional fidelity to otherwise bland subjects, and have taken even the best-produced models and kicked them up a notch or two with details that cannot be produced with injection-molded plastic.
Here is Eduard's pilot restraint set for USAAF WWII aircraft subjects. This set is color-printed and pre-cut fabric which replicates the standard flight crew restraints used on USAAF aircraft during WWII. There is no painting, no threading of buckles nor folding of photo-etch to get this job done. This is an easy update!
If you want to add some eye-catching realism in your next Mustang, Thunderbolt, Warhawk, or similar cockpit without the work, this set is just what you're looking for!
My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
