Barracuda Studios seem well known to many HyperScalers, and they have a well-established reputation for accuracy and offering quality products.

The type of wicker seat reviewed here was sometimes installed in a number of WWI British aircraft. These included the Sopwith Camel, Pup, and Triplane; RAF S.E.5 and R.E.8; the Airco DH.2 and more. They were a special order item from a catalog, and were well liked by RFC pilots.

 

 

The pair of seats comes on an easy to remove casting stub, and packed in a plastic bag with card header. It should come as no surprise that the seats are flawlessly cast and capture the wicker basket-weave construction of the original very well.

I have also chosen to use BarracudaCast’s website images as these are a totally fair and accurate portrayal of the products, and better quality than I can manage with my camera.


 

Conclusion

These superb wicker seats are produced to a very high standard, and should improve the appearance of any suitable WWI subject; I highly recommend them.

Thanks to Barracuda Studios for the images and information
