A-6E TRAM Intruder Interior Details

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.

Many AMS modelers will collect the relevant Eduard photo-etch sets for a given project, and here is another must-have for the Kinetic A-6E TRAM Intruder kit in 1/48th scale. This set provides lots of eye-popping details inside that huge domed office of a cockpit..

This set provides two sets of photo-etched details (one shown), one with color printing to replicate the instruments and console details as well as the various belts and harnesses on the two ejection seats. The set also has numerous details to enhance the interior with authentic structural parts that are difficult to render in injection-molded styrene. To make matters even easier, the parts on the color-printed fret are self-adhesive, so all you need do is place them in the cockpit and then press them into place for the adhesive to keep everything together.

This set will provide nice some outstanding details inside the cockpit of your A-6E and will do so with significantly less effort than trying to hand paint all of that detailing yourself. You should be able to find this detail set at your local hobby retailer or one of the many online hobby shops. Trust me, this is worth looking for!

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
