Product / Stock #: FE511 [Zoom]

Anyone who has ever worked with photo-etched parts knows the most frustrating part is attaching it to the model part. Especially if it is very nice color photo-etch. Well, Eduard, the leading photo-etch maker, has come to the rescue. Eduard started the color photo-etch revolution, and now has taken to making those same color parts self-adhesive. Two new sets in this S.A. line are for the 1/48 Hasegawa SH-3 Sea King helicopter.

This set [FE511] is part of Eduard's ZOOM line and contains just the color cockpit parts. The set is S.A. and featured amazing printed detail that, at least for me, could not be reproduced by hand. The set includes the instrument panels, control levers, and seat belts. The fret comes on a waxed paper backing and adheres well to the plastic part. Eduard's standard high quality instruction sheet is easy to read and leave little doubt as to where or how a part is put on the model.

I highly recommend these sets for anyone wishing to detail their Sea King. While the kit parts are well detailed to begin with, there is no arguing with the added level of detail and the amazing instrument panels provided in the Eduard set. My thanks to Eduard and IPMS/USA for providing the review sets.
