Aircraft Seatbelts 1:32/1:24 Radu Brinzan Yes there are already quite a few seatbelts and harnesses available for numerous manufacturers, but it’s still welcome news when one of the best releases a selection of different items. Radu Brizan has done just this. The seatbelt sets in both 1:32 and 1:24 follow a similar path with a mixture of etched buckles and clasps with the straps being made of a cloth like material. Even in the larger scales the construction is remarkably fiddly with threading the straps through the various metal parts, but the impression given once assembled is quite amazing. The cloth material allows the belts to sag in a more natural way, which etched belts cannot hope to imitate without some expert manipulation. With the quality of kits entering the market, it would seem churlish not to give them what they deserve and try to make the cockpit as real as possible, which these sets do in spades. Conclusion I’ve not been in a position to look closely at Radu Brinzans work before, but these seat belts are really quite amazing. The usual adage of care and patience come into force here, but the extra effort will be well worth it. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
