Barracuda Studios produces a growing line of resin details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their BarracudaCals decal line. In this release, we have a 'snapshot upgrade' which provides the most visible cockpit details with enhanced features for your favorite 1/48 Spitfire Mk.XVI kit.
This set provides a choice of two pilot's seats with two different harness restraints molded in place, a separate cockpit entry door, landing gear retract quadrant, two types of throttle quadrant, two types of gun sights, an instrument panel dial set printed on clear acetate, and a set of cockpit stencils/placards on the decal sheet.
This set will work with any 1/48 Spitfire Mk.XVI including the Hasegawa, Eduard, and ICM kits. For a look at these parts and other options from Barracuda Studios, stop by their website at barracudacals.com.
My sincere thanks to Barracuda Studios for this review sample!
