This is a highly detailed and intricate kit in its own right, and makes a definite improvement in the flaps provided in the Airfix kit. Since the Blenheim, and many other aircraft types of the era as well, had flaps with only one exterior surface, the inside detail is quite visible when the flaps are lowered. This kit provides a set of metal flaps, which are to be held together with superglue, and a very detailed set of instructions. I have done landing flaps for other kits with Eduard accessories, and they are well designed and easy to assemble. However, for the reasons I gave in the Airfix Blenheim kit review, I chose not to use these for my Airfix kit, and will probably adapt them to a Frog kit shortly. However, I have no doubt that if you do decide to build a Blenheim with the flaps in the "down" position, these flaps will be a definite improvement over those included in the kit. Highly recommended if you choose to add this feature to your model.

Thanks to Eduard for the Photo-etch review samples.
