Eduard is to introduce a new range of instrument panels. The new range will be called ‘Look’
The first release in this new range is a 1/32 instrument panel for the P-51D-10 designed for the Revell kit. The new line look just as much of a quantum leap as the first pre-painted instrument panels that Eduard released. Seat belts will be included with the release.

Could this be seen as a reaction to Yahu's success?

I don't know but this sample looks great.

So it seems, but adding the seat belts along just adds more value. I bet that if (or when) Eduard expands this product to a wider range of planes and scales, their PE meant for weekend series or other makers will drop in sales, if the price tag is cheaper.

I wish I could be really enthusiastic about this product, but I can't. The biggest problem for me is their choice of color. More than once I've found a set of colored P/E (for example, their 1/48 Mig-21-F13) where the color doesn't seem to match any known color, and one is left to try and mix paints to match. The same problem occurs with many of the Soviet cockpits, and with the 1/32 T-28 interior set, so it's not unique. I'd much prefer they went back to how they used to do things, which was the film and the P/E, color left to the user.

Color correctness aside for a moment; isn't it almost cheating to purchase a high quality, already made part and simply substitute it in the building of your model? I know we did not sculpt the original model ourselves in most cases but at least the older forms of doing this required some assembly, skill and finesse. Please do not get me wrong - these are beautiful pieces that I am sure I will be purchasing someday!

It may be cheating but not everyone has the skill or finesse to pull off a nicely painted instrument panel. My hands are way to shaky to produce this sort of result.

Modeling at a high level of accuracy and skill often requires talents few of us have. It's why they call those people MASTER modelers. For me, any kit is a series of compromises where I have to determine what level of authenticity, accuracy and (super)detailing I can bring off. All kits for me are a series of compromises, and sometimes that involves using AM additions like pre-printed instrument panels: I simply don't have the skill to render a 1/32nd scale instrument face in the same level of minute accuracy as a printed version like this one. Does that make me less of a modeler? Definitely. But there are many models and insufficient time. So on some matters, I'll pay the extra price and enjoy the shortcut. And nothing makes an aircraft model "sing" more than a highly-detailed cockpit.
