The Airfix Stuka is an impressive kit but there is some room for improvement. When you think of Eduard you automatically think photo etch. So matching these two great modeling companies together is a natural.

Packaged in the typical Eduard resealable packaging with a cardboard stiffener inside are two different frets. The first fret is the pre-painted fret that is the ZOOM set. It is nickel plated and has the instrument panel and interior parts. The parts are really nicely done and the pre-painted is better than I can paint by hand. Some people have issue with pre-painted parts, but I do not.

The second fret contains the detail parts on a brass fret. Things like interior details, ammo drums, radios, gun ring details and other highlights are replicated or replaced. This set will lift the kit cockpit to the next level. There are also detail parts for the wing guns, including the access panels that are realistically thin like the real thing. The rudder and elevator actuators are also provided.

This set is really a one stop shop. Well almost. You will still need to get the seatbelt set. That is the only downside to this set is that it does not have the seatbelts. The amount of upgraded detail makes this set an essential item for your Airfix Stuka.

Highly recommended
