Eduard has perfected the art of the pre-painted instrument panels. I can't even paint the instruments as good as they pre-paint. If you haven't used them you really should try them.

The newest addition is designed for the new Academy 1/48th scale F-4C. The single sheet fret is a nickel plated sheet with all the instrument panels and side consoles for both the front and back seats. These parts are self adhesive and designed to be added directly to the kit parts. You will have to sand off the molded on detail but that is simple enough to do with a sanding stick.

The self adhesive is definitely sticky but I still use super glue to hold the parts together and Future in the bezels to add the sticking and to replicate the glass. The set is simple to add and the visual impact is amazing.

The instructions are printed on both sides of a small sheet of paper. They are easy to understand and follow. They are typical Eduard instructions. I suggest studying them before you begin because you will need to cut off some plastic but it is easy to do and simple.

If you haven't tried one of these pre-painted sets yet, do yourself a favor and do it. This set is easy to use and to add. The amount of detail contained on the pre-painted self-adhesive fret is amazing. You as a modeler can not come close to painting this kind of detail.

Highly recommended

Thanks to Eduard and IPMS/USA for the review copy. You can obtain your copy by contacting Eduard at www.eduard.com or at your local hobby shop on online retailer.
