FirstLook

 

Eduard has released a ZOOM set fof harness straps for their brand new 1/48 scale F4F-3 Wildcat kit.

The set comprises Eduard STEEL harness straps on a small single fret.

 

 

These feature subtle half tones.

Early laps belts plus the later shoulder and lap straps are included. Anti-chafing pads are also aon the fret.

Contrary to their official title, the STEEL straps are actually more flexible than standard photo-etch - Ideal for positioning shoulder and lap straps.

If you have the ProfiPACK release of Eduard's 1/48 scale F4F-3 Wildcat then you will already have a set of photo-etched harness straps.

This set only kicks in if you have the Overtrees edition which does not have photo-etched parts.

However, there is also nothing stopping you from using these harness straps on other 1/48 scale Wildcat kits.

Instructions are included in the package.

 

 

Conclusion

 

This is a simple and inexpensive upgrade to the bare bones Overtrees boxing of Eduard's F4F-3 Wildcat. Alternatively, it could easily be adapted to other 1/48 scale Wildcat kits.

Thanks to Eduard for the review samples
