Product Description

This set consists of a small steel fret with seat belts for the pilot and radar operator. It is small fret, but it does the job.

I removed each part using PE shears and buffed the small spur off with a medium sanding pad. None of the painted surfaces were marred in this process, but nonetheless care is still required to avoid possible damage. I used Gator glue to attach the belts to the seats and allowed the glue to dry thoroughly before carefully bending the parts to fit the contours of the plastic parts. Again, a small dab of Gator glue was use to fix the ends of the belts in place. I feel the Eduard steel belts are a bit easier to bend than the older brass belts and conform to the seat profile quite nicely.


The steel seat belts are a very nice addition to most any kit, especially when the canopies are posed open.

I highly recommend this set for the Tamiya Heinkel He-219. They are a great enhancement to this model kit. I wish to thank Eduard and IPMS USA for the opportunity to build and review this product.
