Barracuda Studios Latest - Just in time for the NATS!


BarracudaStudios have just released a batch of great add-ons for the Spit fans in 48th scale - just in time for the NATS in Orlando Roy will be there himself to twist your arm and sell ‘em to you! The 6 new products are now up on the website and ready for pre-order for those of you who aren’t able to come and see him in person – and we have all the links and pics...

These sets are designed for the soon to be re-released 1/48th scale Seafire 46/47 from Airfix. This kit may already be in your stash, and most of these sets will also be a perfect match for the Airfix Spitfire 22/24 kit.
These sets will be available for sale at the IPMS Nationals next week in Orlando. For those not attending, you can pre-order starting now, but please be aware that orders will not begin shipping until Thursday, August 16th.

Seamless, detailed carburettor intake with separate filter flap designed for Airfix Spitfire 22/24 and Seafire 46/47 kits. The kit intake has a very prominent and hard to eliminate seam running all down the inside surfaces. May be adapted to fit other Griffon Spitfire kits. Price: $5.95


BR48026 Griffon Spitfire 5 Blade Prop- Late
This accurate, detailed cast resin 5 blade spinner and late style 11’ diameter prop greatly improve the Airfix Spitfire 22/24 and Seafire 46/47 kits. The kit blades have too much twist and are oddly shaped. A highly visible upgrade. May be adapted to fit other Griffon Spitfire kits. Price: $7.95

BR48024 Griffon Spitfire Rocker Cover Fairings
 New accurately shaped, detailed cast resin rocker cover fairings designed to correct the Airfix’s Spitfire 22/Seafire 47 kit parts. This small addition will also improve most other Griffon Spitfire kits and is a quick and simple correction.

BR48027 Spitfire 22, Seafire 47 Control Surfaces
This set consists of resin cast separate control surfaces features a new rudder, elevators with matching horizontal stabilizers and ailerons for the Airfix Spitfire 22/24 and Seafire 46/47 kits. It’s a time saving way to add interest to your model. Actuators included. Price: $9.95

BR48028 Spitfire Camera Bay Inserts
This set includes two resin cast vertical F.24 camera faces, and one oblique F.24 camera (front and back inserts) for all PR/FR Spitfires and other RAF, FAA aircraft. Add some visible detail through the clear camera ports by replicating the front face of the cameras within. Quick and easy! Price: $5.95


BR48047 Seafire FR. 47 Contra Prop Blades
Accurate resin contra-rotating prop blades to replace the poorly shaped kit blades in the otherwise beautiful Airfix Seafire FR. 46/47 kit. These were also fitted to some Spitfire Mk. 21s. The most important upgrade you can do to improve your contra-prop Spitfire. Price: $5.95

4 more new products will be announced shortly, and will be available for sale at the show.
Available for sale at the IPMS/USA National Convention – but if you cannot make it there Barracuda is wow accepting pre-orders. Shipments will begin August 16, 2012
