Product # 48264 for Eduard kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Dec 1 2014



This resin set from Ultracast includes 1 top engine cowling for the Spitfire Mk IX.   The Eduard kit upper cowls are 2-pc resulting in a lot of time and effort to correct. Unfortunately surface detail is inevitably lost in the process. The Ultracast 1-pc upper cowl is a real time saver.

Clean up is very minimal and the seats come attached to the casting blocks with very easy to manage connection points and removal is easily done with no loss of detail.  The detail level and casting quality is flawless. 

This cowling saves you time and includes excellent detail. 

You can buy this and many other detail items directly from Ultracast.
