Aircraft instrumentation has grown from the rudimentary compass and clock to clusters of gauges that number in the hundreds within the confines of the typical aircraft cockpit. It is a long way from the earliest days of flight to the present.
It is compromised of thirty-two various type WWI aircraft photoetch instrument gauges with bezels. Each with prepainted faces and details. The one page instructions include identity descriptions to each numbered part. For their locations in each airframe it demands that the modeler have more than a passing experience with the subject.
Here is where you the modeler have to educate yourself. Each aircraft has differing layouts if their instrument gauges. Knowing what goes where is easier with the gauges identified by type. I would have to recommend any of the pertenent Windsock Datafiles by Albatros Pub.
When contacting manufacturers and publishers please mention you saw this review at AEROSCALE
