Barracuda Studios new resin sets in 1/72nd, 1/48th, 1/32nd scales

Barracuda Studios are proud to announce the release of 10 new resin sets to celebrate the new year – These sets are in 1/32nd, 1/48th and 1/72nd scales.

All sets are in stock and available for sale now on the Barracuda Studios website. Links to each of these kits are provided below each one’s descriptions for you.

The new 1/32 Revell Spitfire Mk IX gets some needed attention. It’s a nice kit; not as good as the gorgeous (and very expensive) Tamiya Spit IX kit, but at almost 1/5th the price, it's a great choice if you want to build more than one! Barracudas quick and simple to install cockpit upgrade sets will really transform the very visible cockpit. The two 32nd Spitfire wheels sets that Barracuda Studios released a few months back, but are worth reminding you about, as they a real improvement over the kit wheels.

Here's the scoop on the new sets!
