Product Article by Steve Bamford on Mar 10 2021


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 strictly a cockpit detail set designed for the 1/48 Zvezda IL-2 Sturmovik.  The parts include pre-painted parts for the multi-layered instrument pane, sidewall details, side consoles etc.  You also get unpainted parts for rudder pedal straps, throttle controls, sidewall details etc.

There is 1 page 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.

This is a well thought out photo etch detail set and will give you excellent cockpit detail with minimal effort and you can buy a seatbelt set separately from Eduard.

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