BarracudaCast BR 48195: Spitfire VIII Cockpit Upgrade Set

For: Eduard 1/48 kit


$14.95 MSRP


Scott Van Aken

This is an upgrade set for the Eduard 1/48 Spitfire VIII. The set is quite complete, including two seats, each with a different harness, a new door with optional crowbar, a host of bits to fit to the side walls including a throttle quadrant, a new two piece control stick so you can pose the upper section to match the aileron placement, new rudder pedals, instruments for the instrument panel, and a new late war gun sight. Included are a raft of decals, which are mostly plackards for attaching to the various new boxes.

The set comes with complete full color installation instructions and includes information for running electrical wires and for building foot straps for the rudder pedals. In all, a most complete set and one that you seriously should consider to upgrade your Eduard Spit 8.
