SBS Model's latest cockpit upgrade gives a major boost to the classic quarterscale Hasegawa Ki-44 "Tojo".

I'm amazed at the level of detail in these castings. This upgrade is a kit unto itself. I'd love one of these kits.

It looks very much like the FM Details set I used on my Ki-44 a few years ago. I wonder if SBS acquired the masters from that?

Yes, we own masters of former FM. We made some minor corrections on them, and a new resin seat is included.
