in the bag
Packed in Eduards re-sealable bag, the one small sheet holds one set of seatbelts. Two lap belts and two shoulder harnesses are supplied.
The belts are stuck to a backing sheet, and are pre-coloured on both sides.
If there is one niggle with the belts it is they are too clean looking.
A set of pointed tweezers are needed to remove the belts from the backing sheet, and Eduard state in capital letters that CA glue is not to be used, but white glue is needed to fix the parts.
A small set of instructions are supplied for using the belts.
Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AEROSCALE
