For the Monogram 1/72 kit.

Apparently Starfighter Decals' photoetch rigging for the F4B-4 was pretty successful as we now have another new set following the one on the F11C-2 recently reviewed.

This one is for the venerable, but still very nice Monogram P-6E, a kit that is one of my favorites. Like many of us, I am a bit shy when it comes to rigging small scale planes, but that is now a thing of the past.

EZ Rigging's new set not only includes all the rigging, but also has a very complete instruction section on the back of the card telling the builder exactly what goes where and when to install it. It also includes a radio wire, something that wasn't airfoil shaped, but it is a nice inclusion. Also included are bits for the ventral radiator.

When you add this to their resin cockpit and excellent aftermarket decals for this little Curtiss, it will make into a very nicely detailed aircraft model.
