The Eduard OVERTREE and Weekend Edition kits are really nice kits, but I think they benefit from having the pre-painted photoetch added to the model. I personally love the pre-painted photoetch. There is detail printed on them that I could never be able to replicate with a paint brush.

Packaged in the typical resealable package with a card stock protective backing is one fret of pre-painted PE. This single fret contains many essential interior parts, but the biggest impact would have to be from the seatbelts, shoulder harness and the instrument panel. Besides these key parts there are photoetch deflectors for the engine exhausts, as well as, some other panels and rudder pedals. These parts are all important. There are oil cooler faces as well. Personally, I don't use them as I like the way that the kit parts look, but that is up to the modeler.

Another nice touch is the inclusion of the scribing template for the saddle panel in front of the canopy. I always lose that bit of detail. This makes restoring it easy. Impart a slight bend on the panel then tape it down. Then just a simple pin vise will work to scribe the lines.

I absolutely love these pre-painted frets. They offer all the thing that you need to set your model apart. I use them on EVERY model that they are available for, especially my Bf-109s. I think these are essential for the OVERTREE and Weekend Edition releases. I can't imagine building without them.

Highly recommended
