|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$5.95|
Here is one of the latest releases from Barracudacast, this time providing a drop-in replacement for the exhaust stacks in thel Eduard kit, and can also be used with other Tempest kits with modifications. These stacks feature welding details, mounting flanges, and hollowed-out stacks.
Thiis set is one of several updates to the Eduard kits (both the 'Series I' and 'Series II' releases) that also includes a nice replacement propeller spinner, pilot's seat, corrected chin intake/radiator, and several main wheel options. Each of these sets is inexpensive, and if used with either the Overtrees or Weekend editions of the Eduard Tempest kits, will still be a relatively inexpensive but more accurate project.
My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
