I used this instrument panel and seat belt set in conjunction with a full build review of the latest release of Eduard's 1/48 scale F6F-3 Hellcat, Kit # 8227.

I applaud Eduard for their innovation and the thought of simplifying build cockpits. They are pre-painted and ready to install in your cockpit.

While the instrument panel is very nice, compared to their photo etch equivalents I find the pre-painted markings are a little thick, and make some instruments look like mostly white circles.

The steel seat belts are wonderful and bend easily around the seat edges to conform naturally like the real belts would.

Both the instrument pane and belts make a great addition to the Hellcat cockpit.

Thank you Eduard and IPMS for the opportunity to review this great product.
