Designed for the ARMA Hobby kit, this 70x30mm fret, some of it coloured, comes in the familiar clear sleeve with a card backing and coloured A4 instruction sheet.

Most of the parts are to enhance the cockpit and include a multi-panel instrument layout, a seat, levers, bits’n’bobs around the side panels and doors, and seat belts.



The only exterior parts are for undercarriage leg linkages, radiator core faces and a panel inside the wheel wells. As always these are beautifully etched  and pre-coloured where necessary. Clear instructions how the kit parts need to be modified and where the photo-etched parts go.

These will enhance the ARMA kit and can probably help improve any other manufacturer’s Airacobra and so they come highly recommended.

Thanks to Eduard for the images and information
