Fw 190 A-2 LööK Instrument Panel & Seat Belts

There are a number of parts to the instrument panel [IP] formed in black resin and the instruments are painted or printed on. The parts of the instrument panel are attached to a resin block and should be easy enough to remove. As they are attached to the underside of the panel no touching up will be required. The quality of the paintwork on the instrument faces and switches is very good. When you look very closely there is still that slight unevenness on the surface of the painted area. But you do have to look very closely to see this. I have been unfair taking such close up images, but you can see the quality of the finish is very good. This is a direct replacement for Eduards Fw 190 A-2plastic injected instrument panel. The instrument panel is a lot easier to handle and the paint work tolerates handling, unlike the photo etched equivalents. The instructions don’t provide details of where the IP goes within the cockpit. You need to consult the kit instructions for that.
The pre-coloured photo etched seat harness is a very welcome addition to this set. The instructions provide details on how to fit them to the seat.

Conclusions

The new LööK range of instruments seems to be a step forward. We have become accustomed to Eduards pre-coloured photo etched instrument panels and although they seemed a quantum leap when the first appeared, they do require great care when attaching. The LööK range simplifies the process significantly with impressive results.



SUMMARY
Highs: A lot easy to install than photo etched instrument panels
Lows: A slight texture on the paint work when looked at closely
Verdict: If you want a good looking pre-painted instrument panel that is straight forward to install, then the LööK range from Eduard will be perfect. Highly recommended
