For those of you who want to have all of the aftermarket bits for a kit and want that in photo etch, the Eduard 'Big Ed' sets are for you. What these sets do is to combine all of the available Eduard releases into one package and at a reduced price.

 Take this set, for example. There are three full size sets, one cockpit 'zoom' type set, and a set of masks. The large frets themselves retail for nearly $30 each so you can see what a deal getting them all in one package can be.

If you have used Eduard sets, you know that they are well done and with care, can really add to things. This set includes a landing flap set, engine and undercarriage set, gun bay set, cockpit set, and masks.

This is all designed for the recent HobbyBoss 1/48 F4F-3 Wildcat. If you can handle the material, the results should be just stunning.
