FirstLook

 

These resin 1/48 scale replacement seats will really improve the look of any early Phantom II.

I was impressed with the fact that the two seats in this set are not identical. Cutting Edge have cast the harnesses with an individual "drape" on each seat. They have also thoughtfully labelled the seats "A" and "B" on the casting blocks.

Detail is crisp and casting of my samples was perfect - not an air bubble to be found despite the complex shape and undercutting. 

The seats include the upper pull-rings and centre ring for the ejection mechanism. 

Recommended to anyone building an early Phantom II in 1/48 scale.

Thanks to Meteor Productions for the review sample
