Radu Brinzan's superb Luftwaffe harnesses have been available for a little while, but have somehow managed to slip through our Reviews-net until now...

I just used this set on a Bf109F I bashed from 21st Century Toys and Hasegawa. I found it fairly simple to assemble the belts, and they are much easier to possition than Eduard's Photo Etch belts. I'll still be using Eduards sets from time to time, but for the extra level of detail I highly recommend RB Productions Harness Set.

Hi Mark

Where Eduard score is with the incredibly fine printed detail on their pre-painted etched belts, while Radu's paper belts are flexible and so easier to drape realistically. Now, if someone could just find a way to combine the two techniques, with high-resolution printed paper belts...

All the best
