First Look

BarracudaCals produces a companion line of resin details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their decal line. In this release, we have a pair of one-piece intake fairings for the Classic Airframes kits.

This is a very convenient set to build the Classic Airframes kits. If you haven't fitted your kit together, you have different seams and such to fill inside and out when trying to build the kit. These seamless intakes simply drop into place in place of separately molded intake halves so no surgery is required. Nice!

This set is targeted for the Meteor F.4 and T.7. If you'd like to take that nice Classic Airframes kit to the next level, here is the resin set to make assembly much easier!

My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
