Eduard  SS 201: F-4E Color Cockpit set


$8.99 when new.


Hasegawa 1/72 kit


Scott Van Aken

This is another of Eduard's color cockpit sets and is designed for the Hasegawa 1/72 F-4E. The set basically covers two areas of the cockpit. One is those areas that have instruments with fore and aft instrument panels along with their side consoles. For the main panels in both seats, you get an etched instrument face piece to put behind it. For the others you have an acetate sheet that you can use.

The second main part of the set is for the seats. In this cas you get the fairly complex harness pieces that will be a real challenge to properly install, but when done right will really make the kit seats look great. There are also rudder pedals and a few other smaller bits to attach.

The set comes with full instructions to help you install all the pieces. 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.
