FirstLook

 

The set reviewed here is intended for the Airfix BAC Lightning F.6 kit. I took a “first look” at the very similar Airfix Lightning F.2A here on HyperScale in January last year.

 

 

For many Eduard is a brand name synonymous with superb quality, and this is certainly the case with the item reviewed here, from the packaging and instructions, to the actual components. The single PE fret and small photo-foil come packed with a large card stiffener and printed instructions in a resealable cellophane bag. The instructions are also downloadable in as a PDF from Eduard’s website, to view these please click here.

 

 

Aside from a placard and plate to fit inside each airbrake well, this set focuses on improving cockpit detail. A picture is worth a thousand words, and this adage certainly applies to this “first look”. Eduard’s CAD illustration, my image of the actual fret, and the downloadable instructions should provide readers with almost all they need to about the contents and their intended placement.

Eduard also offers some other accessory sets and masks for eh Airfix Lighting F.6; please click here to view.

 

 

Conclusion

 

This excellent quality detail set should enhance the cockpit of Airfix’s Lightning F.6 very nicely; I highly recommended it.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples and images.
