BarracudaCals now produces a companion line of resin details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their decal line. In this release, we have a replacement control yoke, throttle quadrant, landing gear quadrant, horizontal compass, and even an oxygen hose. The set also includes a set of decals which have standard placards as well as corrected artifical horizon, gyro compass, and horizontal compass faces.
These parts provide some nice detailing for your Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire Mk.VIII or Mk.IX kits, though these can also be used with the Hasegawa and Pacific Coast Models Spitfire kits as well.
The castings are nicely done with sharp detailing.
My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
