Ultracast has been on a program of supplying resin bits for theICM 1/48 Spitfire kit. The newest are a set of elevators.

As with other Ultracast products, they are first-rate and free from alldefects. Though designed for the Spit IX, I can see no reason why they couldn'tbe used on other 1/48 Spit kits.

If unavailable locally, they can be ordered from the Ultracast website at thelinks below.
