For the 1/32nd scale modeler, we have some badly needed Bearcat wheels designed to replace the Trumpeter kit wheels. For the 1/24th scale aficionado, new seats for the Airfix Typhoon kit, with and without belts.

Lastly, our first item in a line of Barracuda Swag. This high quality mousepad will class up any joint!
