First Look

Barracuda Studios produces a growing line of resin details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their BarracudaCals decal line. This release is a simple update for your favorite 1/72 late-model Spitfire kit.

Spitfire Late Cockpit Door w/Crowbar

This set provides a pair of beautifully cast entry doors complete with crowbar clamps and separate crowbars to make painting easy. This set will work with any 1/72 Spitfire kit from the Mk.V to the Mk.24 and in many cases, give you the option of posing the door open where many kits provide the door molded closed. With this set, you can properly upgrade two of your Spitfire projects.

My sincere thanks to Barracuda Studios for this review sample!
