How many times have you looked into the cockpit of a 1/48 Scale F-4 and noticed that the modeler has gone to the trouble of replacing the kit seats with after-market resin seats so that his model will be just that little bit different from everyone else's? Plenty of times right but there is another thing that you notice as well. Yep, that's right, the belts and straps on both seats are identical!

Well, Cutting Edge comes to the rescue with their set CEC48176 and provides you with two beautifully cast resin Martin Baker H5 Ejection Seats. The set consists of the two seats complete with separate the overhead and between the legs ejection handles. The set is cast in Cutting Edge's now familiar mid-grey colour resin and is superbly cast with absolutely no pinholes. The set is packed in a small ziploc plastic bag, which is stapled to a cardboard header.

So, all you need to do is find yourself some after-market buckles and some lead foil and you are well on your way to completing an F-4 that will be truly unique. Heartily recommended for all Phantom fans.

Thanks to Meteor Productions for the review sample.
