This are the the latest releases from Ultracast. As many of you know, Ultracast provides resin replacement bits for some of the more recent kits. They also tend to concentrate on things that the RAF and so Canadian pilots would have flown. This last batch of parts is for the new Hasegawa Spitfire IX, though they may also fit the ICM kit and perhaps other 1/48 Spit kits with some work.

What you have in these last sets are (from left to right): #48089, replacement entrance doors (which also fit the Hase Mk.V); #48090, large style cannon bay covers; #48091, Spitfire IXc cannon bay covers; and #48092, Spitfire IXe cannon bay covers. All are direct replacements for kit parts and all are $4.95 US/$5.95 CDN plus s&h. With the advent of this latest round of resin goodies from Ultracast, you should be able to build any version of the Mk.IX Spitfire using the Hasegawa kit. A very welcome addition to the resin aftermarket family.
