Barracuda Studios New products for March 2013

Barracuda Studios is proud to announce the release of 4 new 1/72nd scale and 2 new 1/48th scale products in the BarracudaCast resin detail set line. These sets are up on the website now and available for order.

These new 1/72nd scale sets represent an expanding product line for builders of 1/72nd scale kits. More will follow in the next few months. For 1/48th scale builders of WWII Russian fighters, we present two sets that represent a fast and easy upgrade for a number of different aircraft. Here are the details.

These wheels were designed from photos and dimensions taken off surviving mainwheels and include raised logos on both sides. All 1/72 Blenheim kit wheels are both too small and completely wrong in proportion and detail. This simple upgrade will make short work of this problem.

This set consists of two highly detailed, accurate resin seats with molded-in seat belts as fitted to the LaGG-3, La-5, La-5FN, I-16 (type 6 and earlier). Fits any 48th kit. Master patterns by Mike Good.
