Air Wing Photo Etch Set

OK, you have the Admiral Kuznetsov  photo etch set and have not been driven over the edge with the tiny details. Then you probably should hit the back button on your browser before reading any further. Too late, well don't say I didn't warn you. The aircraft included with the Trumpeter Admiral Kuznetsov carrier are very nice. However their is room for improvement and this set will certainly do that with it's interior details.
