Seatbelts Luftwaffe WWII Fighters STEEL
The one thing that is a visual interest in a cockpit are the seatbelts and shoulder harnesses. Regardless of what type of aircraft the first thing you see when you look inside the cockpit are the seatbelts.
Eduard has been trying to perfect the use of photo etch seatbelts from the very beginning. Their latest efforts are really nice. This fret includes enough seatbelts for FOUR single engine Luftwaffe aircraft. The STEEL seatbelts are very thin and bendable. The fret is .002 thick and realistically pre-painted. The paint is shaded and looks very realistic. I was able to bend them without the paint coming off which can sometimes be an issue with thicker belts.
If there is a downside, it is that the belts are only painted on one side, but depending on how you bend them they won’t be an issue.
The fret is a bargain with enough parts to do four aircraft. If you are going to buy one thing to add to your model, be it a Bf-109 or FW-190, then this would be that set. Another winner from Eduard.
