Accessory Review
This detail set is a little less involved than their P-47D set, as there is no brass in it, but the photo-etched covers the instrument panel, placards and seat belts, all in pre-painted etched, plus interior detail for the cowl flaps, engine ignition harness, pipework for the undercarriage bays and wing fold, rib detail for the ends of each flap, oil cooler screen and intake details, detail for the tailwheel yoke and the internal structure of the replacement resin main wheels. The resin parts include those main wheels, with the outer face of the hub separate due to those etched details inside, plus there is also a replacement tail wheel, all of which are ‘weighted’ slightly for realism.

Verdict
The Tamiya kit is good on detail to start with, so you are not going to need a mass of upgrade parts and this set looks to include just about everything you are going to really see anyway. The set is produced to the highest quality and is thus recommended to all experienced modellers.
