Italeri 1/72 H-19/S-55 kit


Scott Van Aken

This set is basically an interior detail set with bits for the seats, instrument panels, consoles, and rudder pedals to name a few. For the outside, there are replacement bits for the various antenna, detail for the rotor head, some grab handles, windscreen wipers, an engine screen, and some other small external fittings.

The etched set itself is superbly done with many parts being in full color. It is made under contract by Eduard, so you know that the quality is there. This would very much be a good set for someone to get their feet wet in photo etch. It has the small bits that many really like, yet you do not need to use all of them if you do not wish to. Like all Platz etch sets, it comes with a comprehensive and well drawn construction guide.

It is an excellent set that will surely add a lot to your next build.
