Eduard Models continue to expand its line of aftermarket details sets. This time is a pre-painted photoetch fret for Martin Baker Ejection seats. In particular you get ejection handles for

  • Martin-Baker Mk.5
  • Martin-Baker Mk.7
  • Martin-Baker Mk.GRU 7
  • Martin-Baker Mk.10
  • Martin-Baker Mk.12
  • Martin-Baker Mk. 16 US 16E
  • Martin-Baker Mk.16A

In my opinion this is an excellent idea. There are plenty of sets for seatbelts but very limited on the area of handles. The fact that they are prepainted makes it even more useful as those small yellow & black stripes are challenging the paint, to say the least.

Application of the parts is trivial. Remove, fold and glue in position. It took me longer to assemble and paint the plastic ejection seat than to actually apply the detail parts.

In the picture you see the seat with only the handles. The fret does not provide you with seatbelts, but again there are plenty of options when it comes down to seatbelts.

Highly recommended.

I would like to thank Eduard Models and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
