This last year saw the advent of HGW giving us some great efforts at detail pieces for WWI aviation kits. HGW owner Jan Bobek has sent along some of his products for review. Here we focus on his harness belts for the Roden / WNW 1:32 Albatros D. fighters

There is enough for 2.5 aircraft. The .5 is incase you booger up one or two straps or loose some PE. Remember to use the bag the PE comes in (to keep the fret in while you cut parts free). Notch one corner of the bag so loose parts can be poured on to your work surface one at a time.

Useful tools:
1. Optivisor.
2, Sharp Xacto blade.
3. Steel ruler / straight edge.
4. Gel type Cyano.
