This is a small photo etch sheet with numerous details intended for the Eduard Avia B.534 fighter kit that has been issued in 1/72 scale. The kit already has excellent detail, but the photo etch parts will enhance the appearance of the model, adding things that would be very difficult to scratchbuild.

A very detailed instruction sheet is included, with drawings large and clear enough to be useful under any conditions.

The sheet includes a two part instrument panel, some radiator details for the front and rear portion of the scoop, some metal bracing strips for the radiator housing, two steps for the left side of the fuselage, one small trim control wheel for the left side of the cockpit, a set of rudder pedals, a couple of access panels, a pitot tube assembly for the right wing strut, and six tailfin assemblies for the bombs mounted under the wings of the aircraft. It also includes a self-adhesive seat belt set which can be stuck onto the seat just like masking tape. These belts are very realistic looking, and make a very effective cockpit addition. Also included are a ruing and bead gunsight and a wire type intake cover for the oil cooler in the lower front cowling.

These parts are very small, but they are well done and easy to work with, especially if you have a strong magnifying glass. They can be trimmed with an Xacto knife or with small sharp scissors.

This set is reasonably priced and worth getting if you are building a model of this aircraft. Highly recommended.
