[Kit Review] - RetroWings 1/144 - Cockpit detail set for Platz F6F Hellcat -
Bought a bunch of detail sets from RetroWings last week and this is the first one to be used. From what i see so far, this a fantastic set, the like ive never bought before even though ive seen various other the sets ive bought from RetroWing seem to be highly detailed and very reasonable priced.
This great little set includes a the entirely new cockpit to replace the very simple one supplied with the Platz kit, including the seat, instrument panel, control stick, 2 real nice side panel which are my favourite pieces so far and the largest piece the back and floor with tiny little pedals. There is a another Hellcat set from RetroWings which includes night radar and new cannons.
Added a little wash to bring out the detail, real nice little belt straps which you can even see the buckles. Behind the seat so really nice detail is lost forever and the side panel are really nice but have to wait until painted to see what their like.
Have given this a coat of cockpit green as i post this and will hopefully detail up soon.
