I-16 Type 29 Update set, Seatbelts & Masks (for ICM)

1:32 Eduard




ICM are determined it seams to kit all versions of Polikarpov's diminutive donkey. The kits are very good but still will benefit from a little sprinkling of Eduard updates. 



Update Set (32935)

Two frets are included, one nickel plated and pre-painted, the other in bare brass. The main thrust of the nickel fret is a new instrument panel in two layers. There is also a few other cockpit fittings on this fret, and a new radio box complete with dials. The brass fret provides new insides for the main gear doors, bomb fins, aerial fittings, a new gunsight, cockpit floor parts, new rudder pedals. There are additional cockpit parts in the form of throttles and the landing gear actuators. 







Zoom! Set (33208)

This set contains a reduced subset of the interior, namely the pre-painted parts that are used to improve on the main aspects of the cockpit, as seen above.  Whatever your motivations for wanting this set, it provides a welcome boost to detail, without being concerned with the structural elements.






Seatbelts (33209)

These belts 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.  






Masks (JX224)

Supplied on a sheet of yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the diminutive canopy, and a set of wheel hub masks..
