The new 1:32 Bell P-39Q/N from KittyHawk is a very nice kit straight from the box, but there’s always room for improvement, and Dream Model have released this etch set just for this occasion. Designed purely for the cockpit the single pre-painted sheet is full of those useful little items that can really make a cockpit. The set also includes the instrument panels in a three part systems, where the instruments, printed on an acetate sheet are glued to the back of the panel, then white pare, the templates of which are provided are glued to the back of the acetate. A quick dry run shows that this is particularly effective in this scale and will look great when installed. The rest of the sheet includes items such as the throttle quadrant, throttle cables, door handles, window winder handles, gun cocking handles, various control handles, and even the numerous toggle switches, for which you will definitely need a very fine pair of tweezers and an Optivisor. The set also includes a full set of shoulder and lap straps for the seat. Some parts will require the modeller to provide their own 0.5mm styrene rod.

Conclusion
I’ve not come across Dream Model before, but judging by this small, yet very useful set, I will be paying more attention to them in future. Very highly recommended.
