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 a cockpit detail set designed for the 1/32 ICM Gladiator Mk.I.  The parts include some pre-painted parts for the multi-layered instrument panel etc.  You also get a few parts for cockpit floor, sidewall details and gun sight etc.

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.

The Gladiator Mk.I has a basic cockpit, but this photo etch set provides the detail you need except for seat belts.  Pre-painted seatbelts are available in the Eduard photo etch set 33251.  I am very impressed with the instrument panel in this set.

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