First Look

Mark's Models (Starfighter Decals) also produces a line of resin details which provide some nice enhancements to overlooked kit subjects. In this release, we have the Pratt & Whitney R-1535 Twin Wasp Junior radial engine.

R-1535B Twin Wasp Junior Radial Engine Set

Cast in gray resin, this engine has sharply cast details which only need some good painting and weathering to bring those details out. This engine is great to enhance the details on your 1/72 SB2U Vindicator, SBC-3 Helldiver, A-17, BT-1, Boeing Model 247, Grumman F2F and F3F, and more.

You can purchase this detail set directly from Starfighter on their website.

My sincere thanks to Mark's Models for this review sample!
