Eduard 1/72 Seatbelts Italy WWII fighters STEEL
This new photo-etch set is 3 pairs of seat belts for World War Two Italian fighters. Each set consists of 3 pre-painted parts, a leather (?) back pad, shoulder harness, and a center strap which fits between the pilot's legs and attaches to the shoulder harness. These belts are applicable to Italian aircraft such as the Macchi Mc 200/202/205, Fiat G-55, Reggiane Re 2001, etc. I think it is nice that the belts are pre-painted, because 1/72nd scale belts are VERY small; they will be easy to fold, assemble and glue using Eduard's well illustrated instructions.
This is a useful set. There are many good kits of 1/72nd scale World War Two Italian fighters from manufacturers such as Hasegawa, Italeri, Supermodel and Sword; these belts will add useful cockpit detail and I recommend them. I would like to thank Eduard for the review sample.
