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 teardrop gun cover blisters that replace the Tamiya kit parts.

As described by the manufacturer, the Tamiya kit does provide the wide blister covers for their C-winged Spitfire Mk.IX kit, but the fronts of the kit's blisters are too squared and these parts are a simple swap-out of the kit parts to make that wing look right.

The castings are nicely done with sharp detailing and are ready to drop into your project.

My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
