This new release comprises one compact fret that contains detail parts mainly for the cockpit in pre-coloured and nickel-plated photo-etch.

 

 

The set includes a replacement instrument panel, harness straps, rudder pedals, trim chains and more.

 

 

Undercarriage hydraulic lines, canopy retaining strap, radiator flaps and faces are also supplied.

 

 

Full instructions are offered on a folded, double-sided A4 sheet.

 

 

Conclusion

 

The use of this photo-etched set will result in a noticeably better detailed Bf 109 E-4 cockpit, especially the instrument panel and harness straps. This is a relatively simple and very noticeable upgrade for the lovely Special Hobby kit.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
