This simple little pre-painted fret is a perfect accessory for the Kitty Hawk UH-1D. One of the things about the Kitty Hawk kit is that it has an instrument panel with extra gauges that were added after Vietnam. It also is painted flat black while Vietnam era aircraft had light grey interiors.

This fret features some of the exquisite detail that is common for the Eduard pre-painted frets. There is simply no way that you can paint this good. The instrument panel is a perfect example of the type and markings used in Vietnam. There is also detail on the overhead and lower console. These will look impressive when installed in the cockpit.

Installation is easy. Simply sand down the kit detail and add the new pre-painted parts. I'd recommend painting the parts flat and then adding some Krystal Kleer to the instrument faces to restore the glass look.

This set is simple and easy to use. It is accurate for a Vietnam era Huey. I think this set is the simplest and most essential set for the Kitty Hawk kit. This set along with the other sets that Eduard offer are really great additions to the Kitty Hawk Huey.

Highly recommended
