by: Andy Brazier [ BETHEYN ]

Introduction
Eduard have released several sets of super fabric seatbelts in 1/72nd scale.

Seatbelts RAF late
Seatbelts IJN

Seatbelts France WWI


in the bag
Packed in Eduards re-sealable bag, the one small sheet holds one set of seatbelts. Two lap belts and two shoulder harnesses are supplied.
The belts are stuck to a backing sheet, and are pre-coloured on both sides.
If there is one niggle with the belts it is they are too clean looking.
A set of pointed tweezers are needed to remove the belts from the backing sheet, and Eduard state in capital letters that CA glue is not to be used, but white glue is needed to fix the parts.
A small set of instructions are supplied for using the belts.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AEROSCALE
SUMMARY
Highs: A easy to use set of belts that should hang naturally.
Lows: A bit too clean looking for my liking
Verdict: An improvement over the Photo etch belts, as no paint can chip off these fabric belts.

I then found a friend who enjoyed building models, and between us I think we built the entire range of 1/72 Airfi...
