Product Article by Steve Bamford on Mar 31 2017



This latest release from SBS Model features a resin  Airacobra Curtiss-Electric propeller set (Curtiss-Electric) for the P-39 Crusader from Eduard/Hasegawa.  

A special feature of this set is it permits you to use 1 of 4 different cannons to fire through the prop spinner.  

The 4 cannons include the 

  • 3 resin cannon for the Browning M4 37mm cannon used on the P-39 C, D, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, N and Q

  • Hispano MkI 20mm cannon used on the D-1, P-400 Airacobra I (MkI) 

This is a beautifully crafted Curtiss-Electric spinner with thin blades and the addition of the 4 different cannons for the center of the prop spinner makes this a very good set to have. 

You can purchase these and other fine resin detail items directly from SBS Model or from the many retailers that carry their products.
