How many times have you sanded away the detail on a model and then had to rescribe it by hand? Well over the past several months Eduard has released several photo etch templates of different shapes to make your scribing a little easier. This set is one of those and it is used for access panels.

The set comes on one photo etch fret, but then can be cut down into three separate templates that will then conform to the rounded surfaces of your model kit. To get the examples of what the different panels look like, I chucked a needle in my pin vise and just started working around the template lightly at first and increasing pressure to get depth in the scribing. Once this was accomplished I sand the raised edges and then applied a wash to show off the new panel.

I highly recommend this product to modelers that would like to be able to restore detail that I had been lost through sanding or adding missing access panels. I would like to thank Eduard and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to be able to review this kit.
