STEEL Seatbelts (Various)

1:48 & 1:72 Eduard

Here's the latest batch of the newish STEEL seatbelts from Eduard.  In case you don't already know, they are Photo-Etch (PE) steel, and because of their strength they can be etched from thinner material, which improves realism and flexibility in one sitting.  Coupled with the new painting method that adds perceived extra depth to the buckles and other furniture by shading, they are more realistic looking and will drape better than regular brass PE.

 

 

Seatbelts Italy WWII Fighters (FE826)

Contains two sets of belts including the twin shoulder and single lap belt, with optional rear section.

Seatbelts Italy WWII Fighters (SS594) in 1:72

Confusingly labelled as both 1:72 and 1:48 on the package, when in fact the 1:72 labelling is correct.  This set contains three sets of belts including the twin shoulder and single lap belt, with optional rear section.

Seatbelts France WWI (FE852)

During WWI three types of belt were used up until 1916, with two of each type supplied.  Two other types were used throughout the war, and again, two of each type are included, totalling 10 sets of belts, which is quite generous.  You will need to supply the thin wire that connects the belt loops to the airframe, which is described in a scrap diagram in the instructions.
