First Look

GreenStrawberry is an interesting aftermarket company based in the Czech Republic that produces primarily detail sets for science fiction kits as well as kits of their own. This release is designed for the Moebius Models 1/32 Colonial Raptor kit and features some impressive details. If you thought the stock kit looked good out of the box, this set takes that kit to a completely new level.

Colonial Raptor Interior Detail Set

This set is rendered on three sheets of photo-etched brass plus a set of acetate color-printed screens for the flight deck and systems operator's position. The instructions are very nicely done as they are color-printed to show what modifications are required for kit parts, what preparations are required for each photo-etched part, and where each part is to be placed. Among the details included in this set:

  • Crew restraints for each seat
  • Photo-etched overlays for most of the panels and interior surfaces
  • Provisions for back-lighting
  • Acetate color displays
  • Diamond tread plate floors
  • Lovered steps into the flight deck which are backlit in the full-scale set and can be here too
  • Photo-etched cargo netting and cargo tie-downs

You can see the photos produced by GreenStrawberry showing just how much this set transforms the interior of the kit. GreenStrawberry also produces an exterior detail set which we examined here as well as a set of paint masks here.
