Apparently, BarracudaCast has been doing resin bits for a while, but this is the first of their efforts that I've seen. This small set is for the Tamiya 1/32 Sptifire, though may well be adapted for other kits. Seems that Tamiya didn't get this part of the aircraft interior quite right so BarracudaCast has provided an upgrade.

The resin is flawlessly cast and provides three parts. The two small ones are a remote contactor, and an IFF panel cover, both items missing from the Tamiya kit. The large piece is the forward right side inner cockpit panel. The set includes full painting and installation instructions in full color and with easy to understand photos. This part of the Spitfire was virtually the same in all the variations, making it quite a worthwhile addition.

If you are spending the loot for the big Spits, might as well have it right and this set will be useful in that regard.

My thanks to BarracudaCast for the review set. Visit them at for more info and to order your set.
