Whenever you open the box for this set, there are so many parts that you feel like you're opening a complete resin kit. Altogether, there are 33 resin parts, two photo etch sheets and a clear acetate sheet. It takes six 8" x 6" instruction sheets to show how to put it all together. These instructions appear to be a big improvement over past instruction sheets, because they are less confusing and leave little to be figured out. Only one kit part is utilized, and that is the cockpit floor. And, you only use part of it. There is one other portion of the right fuselage half that gets removed, but that's it. There's not a lot of thinning kit parts until they are transparent or major surgery required.

I haven't been able to find any reference that gives a definitive breakdown of what is "Early" and what is "Late" when it comes to MiG-21s. With so many users all over the world, I'm sure there were many local upgrades to cockpits by many of the users. Regardless, this cockpit is a really nice substitution for their already great cockpit.

As with all of their other "Brassin" releases, the gray resin parts are flawless and require little effort to remove the pour blocks. Clean up requirements are virtually non-existent. And another nice feature of Eduard's "Brassin" releases is that there is no excessive thinning of either plastic or resin to make the parts fit.

My thanks to Eduard and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
