There are 4 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.

These flaps are full of fine delicate detail and will require a bit of patience to build, but if you go slowly, then you will be richly rewarded with a great looking set of flaps.  Eduard has other sets for the Do 217 including the cockpit, undercarriage, seatbelts and the exterior.

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