Loon Models (Roll Models brand) has added another aircraft seat to their 1/72 aircraft accessory line. This one is for the Messerschmitt Me-262. Loon Models don’t specify a kit for this seat, but you will want to use one that has a normal cockpit in it. The kit I picked out for this review is an older Hasegawa kit of the Me-262A.
The LOON seat is two quality pieces of resin; smooth, seamless and bubble free. The detail is also very nice, and it doesn’t need any extra work to bring out the detail. The beauty of this piece is that all I had to do was paint it, assemble the tow parts, and add a drop of super glue for the install. No cutting needed on the original cockpit floor, just drop it in. This seat has no seatbelts molded on it, which is good if you want to add a pilot or add PE seat belts.
When it is compared to the kit’s seat, you can see how superior it is. It didn’t take too much to bring out the detail and I was really pleased with the end result. Another plus is that they also give you 2 seats to a package.
I highly recommend this product if you want a really superior looking model. It was easy to install, and didn’t need any additional work to make it fit. Thanks to Roll Models for the chance to do this review for IPMS/USA.
