Su-33 Update Sets (for Kinetic) 1:48 Eduard The new Kinetic Su-33 is a lovely model, and these sets are here to increase the detail above and beyond what is achievable with styrene injection alone. There are As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. There are two main sets, with the Zoom! set available with just the instrument panel details. Interior (49778) This two set fret includes a nickel plated pre-painted sheet for the cockpit details, and a bare brass set for the more constructional details. The ejection seat is decked out with a full set of crew seatbelts plus a number of extra details such as the arm-rests and headbox. The instrument panels are all replaced with new laminated and pre-painted PE parts after removing the moulded-in detail, with a slip of acetate sheet and some additional PE parts for the HUD unit. The canopy sills are detailed with a skin and the locking hooks, with a matching skin on the underside of the canopy with matching cut-outs, plus a set of rear-view mirrors for good measure. Oddly, there are also a number of sensors and raised panels added outside the cockpit around the nose, with a few more on the flying surfaces. Hardly interior, but who's complaining! Interior Zoom! (FE778) This reduced content set just includes the pre-painted fret and acetate as shown above left, which is useful for those on a budget or wanting to just improve the cockpit above the normal standard without getting involved with the more intricate parts, especially if they plan to leave the cockpit closed. Exterior (48891) Consisting of one fret in bare brass, this includes details for the intake trunking, a replacement afterburner ring that you push into shape before removing, the in-built FOD mesh that retracts into the auxiliary intake louvers, replacement mudguard for the nose wheel, details and skin parts for the dorsal air-brake. The rest of the parts take the form of lots of small panels and chaffe/flare boxes in the rear and around the engines. Masks (EX521) Pre-cut from yellow kabuki tape, this handy mask set supplies the masks for the frame edges of the large canopy panes, with the large compound curves to be filled in with either scrap tape or liquid mask. Also included are a full set of hub and tyre masks to give you the option of painting your tyres or hubs first. Review sample courtesy of
