Spitfire Mk.I Brass Undercarriage Set

This is a brass cast undercarriage set for the new Tamiya Spitfire (kit no. 61119).

 

 

These parts are the same as the superb kit parts but they are far more robust, for parts that always seem to get broken, when handling models.

Note you will need to clean up some casting sprue gates from the parts and the odd small brass 'inclusions' that may appear through the casting process.

 

 

The casting from Aerocraft is crisp with excellent sharp detail and will certainly complement the quality of the Tamiya kit.

Note you will need to clean up some casting sprue gates from the parts and the odd small brass 'inclusions' that may appear through the casting process.

The casting from Aerocraft is crisp with excellent sharp detail and will certainly complement the quality of the Tamiya kit. You are given a choice in tailwheels for different airframes so will end up with a spare to use elsewhere.

 

 

Both sets are recommended for use with the Tamiya kits.

Thanks to Aerocraft Models for the sample.
