The Hasegawa X-29 in 1/72 scale has been around since the mid1980's and, as far as I know, is the only injection-molded kit of this interesting aircraft. Though accurate in outline, it is a very basic kit lacking detail in the wheel wells and cockpit. As was the norm with Hasegawa kits of that era, cockpit detail only consists of decals for the instrument and side panels, and a simplified ejection seat. However, RES-IM fills this void with their beautiful, full color, photo-etched set. If this set has a familiar look to you, that’s because Eduard produces it. Their logo is prominently displayed on the bottom of the fret.
Most of the pieces are for the cockpit - instrument panels, floor, and ejection seat. Those for the ejection seat really add to its realism. While I used CA glue for the instrument panels, I attached the seat pieces with Johnson's Pledge Floor Care Multi-Surface Finish (Future). This was a first for me and it worked great. The finished effect of this product creates a suitably "busy" cockpit, particularly in 1/72 scale.
