With the release of HK Models’ 1/32nd B-25, it didn't take longer for the aftermarket companies to step in and start producing detail sets. Profimodeller is one of these, and they have come up with some really nice stuff. So far, they have released 9 different detail sets and all at a very reasonable cost. I have ordered the additional sets from Profimodeller's website and found it quite easy to use. They are very helpful in answering questions and quick to respond (please note the time difference, you are dealing with Czechoslovakia). I used Pay Pal for payment and received my goodies in a week.

This will be a "First Look" type review. I will be building a B-25 and incorporating the set in the build, but it's going to take a while.

The top turret detail set is a combination of resin, wire, and photo etch. The resin parts are a couple of tiny handles, the wire is for the seat, and the photo etch fills in the remainder. The set will really dress up the details that HK already provides.

The instruction sheet is in English and I guess you can call it adequate. It is a little sketchy on placement of parts and how to bend the photo etch. Hopefully, when I get into the build, the instructions will become easier to understand.

So far, I would highly recommend this set. It’s not an expensive set and it should enhance an already detailed model kit. Many thanks go out to IPMS USA for giving me to opportunity to review this detail set and to Profimodeller for providing the detail set for us to review.
