The set consists of one photo etch sheet. The PE parts are an unpainted natural metal (silver) color. This set is kind of interesting. You use the kit parts and these simply wrap around the existing belts, providing a very good looking ammo belt tray combination. The instructions are quite adequate in explaining the bending and placement of the details.
The down side of this beautiful set is that once the plane is completed, it is hard to see all the work you have done. The new details are a little difficult to apply. I found if you glue the sides first, than wait a little bit for the glue to set, then you can bend the top down to fit. Also, the bottom of the belts are not detailed. This is especially noticeable in the forward bombardier’s compartment.
HIGHLY recommended. One should have experience working with photo etch and using ACC glues or epoxy.
Thanks to Eduard for providing us with such a nice detail set, and thanks to IPMS USA for giving me the opportunity to review and build it.
