There are  pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  You will be required to cut away detail on the kit parts to fit these photo etched parts, but this is indicated on the instruction sheets.

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

Regarding the windscreen wipers in this set.  If you attach photo etch parts near clear styrene, then the CA glue fumes will fog the clear styrene.  To avoid fogging the clear styrene from CA glue fumes you can coat the clear styrene parts in Future to provide a barrier or use a different adhesive such as white glue or Future itself as a glue.  Future and white glue are effective to use to glue photo etch parts to clear styrene, but they do take a long time to dry.  

This is a nice set with some great upgrades for the exterior of the 1/72 Zvezda C-130H.

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