Accessory Review
This set offers highly detailed multi-part engines and cowlings for the F or G versions of the Flying Fortress. Each engine is made up of the cylinder bank, central reduction gear casing, magneto and push-rod tubes, whilst the cowling is made up of the outer main ring plus the gills; these latter parts come in four specific styles to fit each of the engines, as they are all different. The etched fret includes the wiring harness and cowl retaining strap, whilst there is a nice little set of decals for the manufacturer's identification plate.
 
Verdict
This is a superb set and it will add a huge amount to the old, but still well worth building, Revell/Monogram kit. It is highly recommended to all USAAF modellers.
Our thanks to Eduard (www.eduard.com) for the review sample.
