Eduard Item No. 73713 - FM-2 Wildcat Photo-Etch

Eduard has released a number of photo-etched updates for the Arma Hobby 1/72 scale FM-2 Wildcat kits.

This is a photo-etched set in Eduard's standard series, which includes one pre-painted photo-etched fret of detail parts plus one brass plated fret.



These colour photo-etched fret provides harness straps, a multi-part instrument panel, side consoles, handles and throttles plus other cockpit details.



The bigger brass plated fret will lift your model into super-detail status. It provides flaps that may be posed in the dropped position, along with a detailed flap ceiling, a replacement metal seat, ignition harness and many other small but useful detail parts.

Full colour instructions clearly guide the installation of the parts.


Eduard Item No. CX578 - FM-2 Masking Set

USD$7.95 plus shipping available online from Eduard and hobby retailers worldwide.

Eduard has also released a masking sheet for the Arma FM-2 Wildcat kits.



This supplies die-cut self-adhesive masks for the canopy and wheels. Easy!





If you have purchased the basic Model Kit series of the rather gorgeous Arma Hobby 1/72 scale FM-2 Wildcat, these two upgrades will be of particular interest.

Even if you have the Expert Series kit, with its colour photo-etched parts and the new level of detail in the flap bay and engine compartment, this Eduard photo-etch set will be a real upgrade.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
