In case someone does not know it yet, Highlight Model Studio offers a catalog of high quality parts to improve your 1/24 scale model cars and all of them are incredibly cool!!! :D

The first novelty is a set of ratchets to tie your models to a trailer (for instance), and includes photoetched parts and tape to simulate the fabric.

And the third and for us the most striking, is the upholstery of a bomber seat for the VW Beetle, also made in a really cool photo-etching!!!
