This pre-painted photo etch detail set from Eduard is part of the Zoom series of photo etch sets and is available directly from Eduard Model AccessoriesThis is an interior detail set designed for the 1/48 HK Models B-17G.  The parts include pre-painted parts for all the wooden wooden floors and ammo boxes and I think the navigators tale is also included, but I can't be 100% sure.

There are 2 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  You will be required to cut away detail on the kit parts to fit these photo etched parts, but this is indicated on the instruction sheets.

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

(Image above is blurry because I couldn't find a higher resolution image.)

Trying to replicate wood grain is a tricky process to say the least, so this set is a very welcome addition to the goodies for the 1/48 B-17G.

You can buy this pre-painted photo etch detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
