Barracuda Studios | BR32160: Bf 109G-10 and K-4 Oil Cooler Fairing
Reviewed by Kevin Futter
BarracudaCast, out of Roy Sutherland's Barracuda Studios, has just released a range of resin upgrade items aimed primarily at Revell's new Bf 109G-10 kits. Here we take a look at set BR32160, which the packaging describes like so:
This detailed, accurate resin oil cooler fairing fixes the kit part that is too slab sided on Revell's Bf 109G-10. Can adapt to fit the Hasegawa.
This is a very simple upgrade set, consisting of only two resin parts:
The casting is crisp and flawless, with no pin holes, resin flash or other imperfections visible anywhere. No explicit instructions are provided for fitting these parts, but since this set is clearly designed as a drop-in replacement for the existing parts in the Revell kit, fitting them should be a 'plug-and-play' operation. There are some sturdy casting blocks to remove, but some care with a razor saw should take care of those. Again no advice is given regarding adapting them for the Hasegawa kit, so the enterprising modeller is left to their own devices in that regard.
If you have the Revell Bf 109G-10 kit, and would like to improve the look of the oil cooler fairing, then this set is highly recommended! Use at your own risk with the Hasegawa kit.
Thanks to Roy Sutherland for the review sample.
