This is a photoetch waist section set to for the Hong Kong Models B-17 E/F Kit number 01E04a. This set with two photoetch sheets one of which is colored. These sheets add a lot of detail to the waist gunner's area of the fuselage in the B-17. These parts really add some great additional details to a great kit.

In the packet is:

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

Summary

This is another wonderful set for a kit that is great to begin with; these parts are an great details.

I did find one minor issue with the set - the parts 40, 8a, 8b, 11 and 66 show them being a symmetrical assembly but in fact there is only one location.

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
