Cutting Edge RA-5C Seamless Intakes (early)


CEC 48487




Trumpeter 1/48 RA-5C


Scott Van Aken

One of the biggest problem areas with many jet aircraft kits is that the intakes are usually either very short, when compared to the prototype, or if full trunking is provided, it is near impossible to remove all the seams. Cutting Edge realizes that many want a nice looking intake and have designed a set to take care of that.

The set comes with two full intake openings and a superbly molded set of seamless trunking. One basically replaces the kit items with these fine resin moldings. The detail on the intake openings is first rate and these have the correct profile if you wish to do an early RA-5C.
