FirstLook

 

Eduard has expanded their range of accessories for to include a LOOK multi-media update set for HK Models' 1/48 scale B-25J Mitchell.

 

644206 - B-25J LOOK Update for the HKM kit

This LOOK set comprises a 3D printed instrument panel and two resin rudder pedals, plus photo-etched parts for the half-tone harness straps for the pilot, bombadier and the navigator.

 

 

The faces of the instrument panels are pre-painted with impresive detail.

 

 

The printed faces look good in real life - actually better than my much larger-than-life studio photos!

Preparation won't take long. A razor saw will do the trick for the radios and the instrument panel can be snipped free with sprue cutters before a quick cleanup with a sanding stick.

The STEEL photo-etched fret supplies nice flexibale pre-coloured harness straps.

 

 

Detailed instructions are included.

 

 

Conclusion

 

This SPACE set offers an alternative to the photo-etched instrument panel and smaller panels as also offered by Eduard. It will result in a well-detailed cockpit in HK Models' B-25J Mitchell.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
