Master 1/48 Spitfire IXE/XVIE Conical Canon Fairings






Eduard 1/48 kit


Scott Van Aken

This Master brass set is for the Eduard kit. Specifically those Spitfire kits that have the type E wing. This wing deleted the two outer .303 cal guns and while the bays were still there, there were no shell chutes. New to this wing was a single Browning .50 cal machine gun inboard of the extant 20mm Hispano cannon that was a standard feature of the 'universal' or C wing. As the cannon were set a bit farther back in the wing, the resulting conical housings on this wing were shorter.

This particular set provides the two shorter canon housings and separate barrels. There are also properly shaped covers for the inboard .50cal machine guns. The set includes full instructions.
