First Look

BarracudaCals now produces a companion line of resin details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their decal line. In this release, we have a pair of nicely cast valve covers for the Merlin engine, complete with the Rolls Royce logos stamped into the sheet metal covers.

These parts provide some nice detailing for your open-cowled Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire Mk.VIII or Mk.IX kits, though these can also be used with the Pacific Coast Models Spitfire kit as well.

The castings are nicely done with sharp detailing.

My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
