Accessory Review
This set contains two pre-painted frets and a single standard one. The former include the instrument panels, radio equipment, seat belts, side consoles and all the various wires in the cannon bay and wheel wells. The unpainted fret offers a new gunsight, tip to the ‘Morane Mast’, nose wheel well details, nose leg compression linkage and brake lines, rear cockpit bulkhead, aileron and trim tab linkage, DF loop, canopy grab handles and latches, main oleo leg compression linkage, brake lines and towing eyelets, various details for the main undercarriage bays and the clamps and brackets for the RATO bottles

Verdict
A very useful set that will add a lot of very visible details. The kit itself is more akin to the B-1a/U1 nightfighter than the trainer so a little extra research will be required to ensure a real B-1a is depicted.
