There are resin options out there for fuel cells, but nothing matches the crisp lines and details that photoetch does. This kit is designed so you can paint the fuel cell and frame separately, which makes the end result look much, much more realistic.
Kit requires some mall pins, rivets (from Scale Hardware), or even small needles to finish the lid (sold seperately).
* Note *
Remember to always fold INTO the fold lines when bending up your photoetch. These parts are designed with bend tolerances, and the fold lines disappear in the crease after the parts are folded.
