This resin set includes all 4 B-17 superchargers plus 2 additional pipes.  The superchargers are located on the underside of the engines on the B-17, so you have a different set-up between the right and left engines and a different set-up between the inner engines and the outer engines, because the inner engine nacelles house the landing gear.  The right and left inner engines also contain additional plumbing that is also included in this set.

There are 2 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  The instructions also include painting instructions.

On the US aircraft, the superchargers were a prominent feature and this set does a wonderful job to upgrade the detail on the superchargers on the big HK Model B-17 kit.

You can buy this detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
