Roy Sutherland has sent the following information and images of the next releases in his range of accessories, available to order now:

Barracuda Studios is proud to announce the release of 8 new sets in 1/48th and 1/72nd scale.

The British WWI wicker seats have been very popular in 1/32nd scale, and we have received many requests for scaled down versions of both styles. Your wish is our command. They are now available in both 1/72 and 1/48 scale. You have to see the detail to believe it.

The new tool 1/72 Airfix Beaufighter is gorgeous and is due to be released very soon. We have 4 styles of mainwheels ready to go. Read on!


 

BR72246 Beaufighter Early Wheels - No Tread

 

 

Super detailed, accurate single brake main wheels with 5 slot hub on one side and smooth tyres to replace kit parts in new Airfix kit and others. These were fitted to early production Beaufighters, especially the night fighters and desert based aircraft. Designed for the new Airfix Beaufighter, but can also be made to fit other kits as well.


 

BR72247 Beaufighter Late Wheels - No Tread

 

 

Super detailed, accurate dual brake main wheels with plain hubs on both sides and smooth tyres to replace kit parts in new Airfix kit and others. This is the type most seen on Coastal Command and European theater Beaufighters, as well as all postwar Beaus. Designed for the new Airfix Beaufighter, but can also be made to fit other kits as well.


 

BR72248 Beaufighter Early Wheels - Treaded

 

 

Super detailed, accurate single brake main wheels with 5 slot hub on one side and treaded tyres to replace kit parts in new Airfix kit and others. These were fitted to Beaufighter ICs operating in the Pacific theatre, and other early Beaus operating from unimproved runways. Designed for the new Airfix Beaufighter, but can also be made to fit other kits as well.


 

BR72249 Beaufighter Late Wheels - Treaded

 

 

Super detailed, accurate dual brake main wheels with plain hubs on both sides and treaded tyres to replace kit parts in new Airfix kit and others.

Designed for the new Airfix Beaufighter, but can also be made to fit other kits as well.


 

BR72257 British WWI Wicker Seat - No Belts

 

 

Set contains two super detailed 1:72 scale wicker seats that were sometimes installed in a number of WWI British aircraft. Sopwith Camel, Pup, Triplane, S.E.5, DH.2, R.E.8, and more. They were a special order item from a catalog, and were well liked by RFC pilots. Master patterns by Michael O'Hare.

Two different super detailed 1:72 scale wicker seats that could be installed in a number of WWI British aircraft. Sopwith Camel, Pup, Triplane, S.E.5, DH.2, R.E.8, and more.
