Accessory Review
This is a two fret set, one being pre-painted and self-adhesive, the other just plain etched. The former is mainly for the cockpit interior, with new rudder pedals, sidewall and side console details, instrument panels and canopy sills. You also get a full set of detail parts for each ejection seat, including the seat cushion, belts and the firing handles. Detailed liners for the exhaust pipes are also included, as well as afterburner rings. A HUD is included, with clear lens, and the nose bay gets entirely new details for the wides and roof etc. FOD guards are included for the intakes and there are lots of new details for each oleo leg and their associated bays/doors. The extreme tip of the fuselage can be posed open, with new details for this and the door linkage, plus there are rearview mirrors to go inside the canopy and a crew access ladder.

Verdict
A very comprehensive update for a kit that is so easy to build, but for some, may just need these extra touches to make it that bit more appealing.
