Here's a look at some of Eduard's aftermarket sets for the MPM 1/48 scale He 177, from simple painting masks through to a superdetailed cockpit.

Hi Rowan

Well, honestly I feel the etched sets are a rip off .. to be precise the interior set. Some etched frames that cost a dollar or two including research and packaging being sold for 27 and does not include the seat belts is just that. I am not talking about the quality and colour choices but just the fact that you have to spend another 8 $ to get the interior complete ... I know its all about business and the market AND this is not the first and will surely be not the last set.

I love Eduard for their products, especially the kits and masks, but their price policy on PE is very greedy. (also the big Ed sets are no bargain)

Feel free to delete my post, but I just had to say it.

best wishes

Steffen
