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 replacement startboard sidewall for the Tamiya Spitfire kits This set replaces the kit part and corrects some detailing that is missing from Tamiya's parts. This part will work in their Spitfire Mk.VIII, Mk.IX, and Mk.XVI releases.

The castings are nicely done with sharp detailing and just need some proper painting to bring all those nice details out..

My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
