The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

This set adds some much needed detail to the 2 seat cockpit of the Airfix De Havilland DH-82A Tiger Moth trainer

You can purchase these and other fine detail items directly from SBS Model or from the many retailers that carry their products.
