This is a photoetch Interior set to for the Hong Kong Models B-17 E/F Kit number 01E04a. This set with two photoetch sheets one is colored and adds a lot of needed detail to the Nose compartment of the B-17. These parts really add some great additional details to an great kit.

In the packet is:

  • 1 colored photoetch sheet
  • 1 photoetch sheet
  • 1 instruction sheet

Summary

This is a fantastic set for the set for a kit that is great to begin with, these parts are an awesome addition.

I did find a few minor issues with the set and also with the main kit instructions;

The sets instructions have an error in the ammo box part numbers and PE part numbers but this is easily overcome by referring to the main kit instructions. There is also a part number issue with kit in regard to the front guns but the Eduard instruction give the correct combination. There are also a few details that need to be removed from the original kit parts that are not highlighted in the instructions. Just always test fit and ensure that all areas that need removal are done so.

Please note that the gun barrels shown are from another aftermarket set I had.

If you have invested in the HKM B-17 you really should add this set and the others by Eduard.

Thanks go to Eduard for providing this set to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
