Eduard...etch-fan. Interior (now in color), exterior, bomb bay. the
bomb bay is a really cool looking piece of structure, IMO...though I
like the torpedo bomber as illustrated on the ProModeler box.
Both Superscale and Aeromaster have some decal sheets out there, as I
recall. I'm still looking for a scheme for mine. I have a couple sets
of decals, but I still really like the OOB scheme with the white
nacelles, so I may just go for that...for a change. I'll probably make
up the decal set from other sources, though. Hate those Monogram decals.
hey, did i see that? sure don't remember, but thanks for the
refs...you've turned me into a pe monster. i'm still not
real good at it, but it seems to be like vac-form canopies.
once you cut one right and see it, it's nailed.
and pre colored parts? wowsers!
so about $80 worth of after market for a $18 kit?
seems about right.
a cool bomb bay is the way to go...
Yeah...I'm going broker buying up the sets for the 1/32 Avenger at the
moment. The interior set is WAY cool - tons of brass structure for the
bomb bay there. And for the radio compartment and such.
I think the most I've ever gone is for all five sets for the Academy
Thanks. I really like that sub-chaser scheme and I have a whole series
of them planned ranging from the -5 Cat to Avenger to SBD to Helldiver
Which reminds me...I still haven't made up my mind on a scheme for my -5A...
IIRC the nose glass also serves as the front fuselage section. It is all a
single clear piece that one paints where necessary.
As far as a fix is concerned, judicious sanding and filling are required.

Here's a couple of other products nobody's mentioned (AFAIK):
1. True Details makes (made?) a resin cockpit detail set, no. 48458. Looks
like pretty typical TD. Nice looking seat with much better seatbelt detail
than the kit's.
2. Koster Aero Enterprises (Bill Koster) put out a comprehensive mixed-media
detail set with clear vacuform parts for gondola front and rear, dorsal
enclosure, nose sphere, pilot windscreen, pilot and crew hatches; white vac
parts for nose shell ejection fairing, bombadier pad, special ordnance
carrier plate, cargo containers, engine nacelles for 111P; and a bunch of
various MGs, cannon and ammo drums in white metal. The set allows you to
build P-2, 4 or 6, and H-2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 11 or 14 variants.
Greatmodels.com sell the Koster set for $21.95 USD:
