FirstLook

RESIN2detail produces 3d printed resin parts in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scale for a wide range of WWII aircraft upgrades.

Today we will be looking at two sets that are designed for the HK Models or Tamiya 1/48 scale Lancaster kits.

 

 

The cockpits of both kits are a bit basic, but RESIN2detail will launch the space into a new universe of detail.

RESIN2detail offers several levels of detail and one major difference.

Both sets being reviewed tonight include a very handy little pile of details as well as the seats themselves.

These Super Deluxe inclusions are a trim wheel, aux. pump and head armor plus detailed control column / yoke upgrade.

Set R2D48204 supplies a seat with backrest, seat cushion and harness straps cast in place.

 

 

Set R2D48205 supplies a seat without the harness straps if you prefer to use your own.

 

 

The parts are presented in grey coloured 3D printed resin.

There is very little cleanup required apart from a bit of a jumble of attachment points on the rear, sides and bottom of the seat.

 

 

Take care when removing the attachment points from the beautifully delicate control yoke too.

 

 

The harness straps look great moulded in place.

 

 

You will see some fine hair-like fibres in the photos. They are simply residue from the packing inside the box. These will easily be brushed off.

 

 

Conclusion

 

RESIN2detail's Pilot Seat upgrade sets will be suitable for either the HK Models or Tamiya 1/48 scale Lancaster kits.

The seat and the beautifully refined detail parts will be the jewel in the crown of your 1/48 scale Lancaster.

You won't have any difficulty preparing and installing RESIN2detail's 3d printed parts if you have worked on 3d conversions before.

These are a must for anyone adding detail to their Tamiya or HK Models 1/48 scale Lancaster kits..

Thanks to RESIN2detail for the review samples
