I reviewed the Kittyhawk F-86D kit some time ago here.  Its a pretty good kit and Kittyhawk are going from strength to strength.  That said for those who want to add a few bits to the kit (and who doesn't) Eduard have produced a number of sets recently for this kit.  I have just started the kit and will be doing a build log so figured I'd review the sets as I go.

 

This update only contains one etched fret, but its pretty crammed with details for the seat and with a full set of seatbelts (though I will use Eduard's fabric ones on mine) and Remove Before Flight tag for the seat and for the Ejector Seat handles too.  A nice touch I thought.

 

Everything is up to the usual Eduard standard.  It'l require some surgery on the seat.  I have just done mine and it wasn't beyond me so any of us can handle it Im sure.  So without further ado I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Conclusion.
A great set that will add to the already great detail in the Kittyhawk kit.  


Highly recommended to all who like to add just that little bit more.  

Thanks to Eduard for the sample and to Jim for passing them on to me for review and use.

I should have pics (on an upcoming - hopefully start tonight) build on what they look like on plastic.

That said, so far all is great, and the replacement sidewalls on the seat make a real difference.  

1st coat of paint is already on just some weathering to do so hope to have more soon :)
