Roy Sutherland has sent the following information and images of the next releases in his range of accessories, which will be launched at Scale Model World this weekend:

Barracuda Studios is proud to share another sneak peak of the new products to be released at Scale Model World in Telford, England on November 7th and 8th, 2015.

This is the second and last of two previews. It should be ten sets in all, but two sets ran into some production snags and will not be available in production quantities. We will have resin samples to show, and the set will be available shortly after the Telford show.

Here's the lowdown on today's batch of new products, which spans three scales. Please excuse the photos. The tight deadline precluded setting up the photo studio for proper shots. I think you will get the idea, though.


BR24281 1/24th scale DH Mosquito Late Style Mainwheels



These wheels are a huge upgrade to the soon to be re-released Airfix Mosquito in 1/24th scale. The kit is very nice, but the wheels are poor, with monster truck style tread on the vinyl tires. A quick and easy upgrade.


BR32265 1/32nd scale DH Mosquito FB VI Ammo Feed Chutes



This set of 12 resin parts replace the ammo feed chutes in the gorgeous new Tamiya kit. These feed chutes are molded with ammunition and even the feed links visible through the slots in the chutes. The openings are undercut as are the shells to give a sense of fully hollow chutes. Some detail painting and a wash will really add detail to this very visible area.

This set will not be for sale at the show, but will be available shortly afterwards. watch this space for announcements.


BR72274 1/72nd scale Avro Shackleton MR 2/AEW 2 Wheel Set



This set contains 2 mainwheels and 2 tailwheels (double tail wheel unit on the Shack) to directly replace the kit parts. The kit wheels are accurate, but these wheels have much more detail and will add much visual appeal to your model. A quick and easy upgrade!


BR72275 1/72nd scale Avro Shackleton MR 2 Early Exhausts



This set contains 8 drop fit replacement exhaust inserts. Our exhausts are hollowed out for a more authentic look and have fastener detail not present on the kit parts. We have a late style exhaust set with the exhaust diverter pipes coming soon, but they will not make the show. They will be available shortly after the show.

That's all for now.

Thanks to Barracuda Studios for the images and information
