Eduard  FE 340: RF-4C Cockpit set


$7.99 when new.


Hasegawa 1/48 kit


Scott Van Aken

One of the best things Eduard has produced are their color Zoom cockpit sets. This one is for the Hasegawa 1/48 RF-4C Phantom II. Pretty much all of it consists of instrument panels and side consoles. No longer is an acetate instrument sheet included as the instrument faces are now p.e. as well. One simply mates the faces to the front part of the panel then attach them to the cockpit. One does have to remove the extant raised detail, but it is a simple process.

The set comes with full instructions and is easy to install. One thing of note is that Eduard has never been able to properly match the background colors and this set is no exception with the grey being lighter than FS 36231 that you will paint the rest of the cockpit. Still, the set is well worth picking up if you are doing one of these.
