Accessory Review
This is a two fret set, one of which is pre-painted and self-adhesive. The details offered include both crew seats, with belts, all the side consoles and radio equipment plus an entire new instrument panel all in pre-painted etched. You will have to cut up the kit parts to install some elements. The throttle box and central console with trim wheels etc. is also replaced, and there is a bombsight. Other details include the brake lever on the control column and map case mounted on the back of it, a ruler and dividers to go on the map (decal) that is in the kit, new doors either side of the rear gun turret, ammo feed rails for the rear turret, oil cooler matrices for the chin intakes, new rear doors for the radiator units, bomb nose and tail arming vanes and a set of bomb racks, with the sway braces either in the ;loaded' or 'unloaded' configuration.

This is a pretty extensive set and you will have to cut quite a lot of the interior component parts about to install these new bits, so it is more suited to the experienced modeller, but well worth investing in for your model.

Our thanks to Eduard (www.eduard.com) for the review sample.
