When Eduard releases their Weekend Edition or their Overtree issues they release a small 'essential' fret of pre-painted photo etch.  Such is the case with the latest release from Eduard.

This one fret of photo etch provides the modeler with a pre-painted instrument panel, seatbelts and interior parts.  They also provide radiators, exhaust deflectors, antennas and an access panel.  Really, can you paint as well as Eduard prints on their instrument panels?  I know I can't.  I love the pre-painted instrument panel and the seatbelts. 

Typically, these sets don't come with instructions but the downloadable kit instructions show where they go. 

The key to these LEPT frets is that they are only available for a limited time, normally about a month after the release of the overtree kits. 

If you have never used photo etch these are great little sets to practice with while adding detail that I think is superior to the plastic. 

With the low cost, essential detail, and ease of use there is no reason not to use them.  The trick is to get them early upon a kit release or lose out on the detail.  You can find the same stuff on the larger photo etch sets but these really are the essential items to add.

Thanks to Eduard and IPMS/USA for the review copy.  You can only obtain your copy directly from Eduard at
