Engines Set (672131)
This is a comprehensive set to replace all four main engine units for the B-17G, included are engines with seperate nacelles and cowling flap rings. There are 24 resin parts and photo-etched details. To build these up first the wiring harness is applied to the engine, and a front PE ring as well which has to be bent from straight rod. Two seperate resin parts are then added to each engine front. The exhaust ring is then added to the rear of then engine. The cowl flaps are then added to the rear of this assembly. The engine is then added to the wing. The nacelles can be added over the engines as needed.

Conclusion
Whether you use one or all of these sets the results should be an improvement over the kit parts. All are of the consistent high quality we now expect from the Brassin range. The casting on the engines is particularity good. Highly Recommended.
