Platz has released 3 PE upgrade sets for their recent 1/72 F-1 kit. The sets are for the undercarriage bays, exterior and cockpit. This review is for the cockpit set.
The single fret contains about 90 pieces of PE of varying sizes, some of which are coloured. There are seatbelts and a few replacement and add on pieces for the seat. New sidewalls, throttles and switch panels as well as a replacement instrument panel. The canopy rails are replaced as well as a host of small aerials mostly around the nose and lights in various places on the aircraft. Overall a nice simple upgrade for the kit.
Many thanks to Platz for the review sample.
