Photo etch sets can be a real boon to the modeler. Especially if those sets will actually add detail and do so in a manner that looks appropriate. This set from Platz is actually made by Eduard and is a full color set. It includes parts to fit all over the aircraft, including the cockpit.

There are sections of instrument panel, seat harness, rudder pedal and some sidewall detail. There is piping for the wheel wells and labels for the landing gear components. A new inner canopy rail is provided and there are even caps for the missiles.

Having this set is color is a real bonus that is sure to enhance your next F-2A build.
