First Look

Barracuda Studios produces a growing line of details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their BarracudaCals decal line. This release provides a replacement set of landing gear struts and retraction arms cast in brass. This set also includes a resin tailwheel, though the main wheels are sold separately because there are two styles to choose from.

This set provides beautifully cast main gear struts and arms, which are drop-in replacements for the new Airfix kit, though you can adapt them to fit the Falcon, Hobbycraft, AMG, and Trumpeter kits.

For a look at this set and other options from Barracuda Studios, stop by their website at

My sincere thanks to Barracuda Studios for this review sample!
