Anyone who has ever worked with photo-etched parts knows the most frustrating part is attaching it to the model part. Especially if it is very nice color photo-etch. Well, Eduard, the leading photo-etch maker, has come to the rescue. Eduard started the color photo-etch revolution, and now has taken to making those same color parts self-adhesive. Two new sets in this S.A. (Self Adhesive) line are for the 1/48 Hasegawa SH-3 Sea King helicopter.
The includes the color cockpit details, as well as a second fret containing detail parts for rest of the cabin interior including jumpseat, grab handles, equipment stacks, and various panels. As with all Eduard products, the detail is well rendered, and the parts are cleanly etched and easy to work with.
I highly recommend these sets for anyone wishing to detail their Sea King. While the kit parts are well detailed to begin with, there is no arguing with the added level of detail and the amazing instrument panels provided in the Eduard set. My thanks to Eduard and IPMS/USA for providing the review sets.
