New Barracuda Studios Resin (Tamiya Mustang)

Information supplied by Roy Sutherland

BR32012 P-51D Mustang Cockpit Sidewalls 1:32nd scale

This set consists of replacement resin cockpit sidewalls with separate small parts such as levers and handles that add a level of detail not possible in the kit parts. Much new detail such as wiring has been added, and the switches and knobs have much more relief and are much more detailed and accurate looking. A simple upgrade that will make a real difference in this big and very visible cockpit. Designed for the Tamiya kit, but will work in any 1/32 D model Mustang kit.

BR32013 P-51D Mustang Instrument Panel 1:32 scale

This set features a new multi-media instrument panel, with both photoetched parts and film dials that will reproduce the fine details of the instrument faces much more sharply and finely than is possible with preprinted photoetched parts or printed decal faces. Fine details such as the fuel tank selector panel have a separately molded selector switch so that the decal panel (found on the cockpit stencil and placard sheet announced below) can be applied without having to try and go over and around this sizable switch. Knobs and switches, as with the cockpit sidewalls, are much more detailed and realistic. Designed for the Tamiya kit, but will work in any 1/32 D model Mustang kit.

BR32014 P-51D Cockpit Upgrade Set 1:32 Scale

This set will provide such details as a new K-14 gunsight, throttle quadrant, rudder pedals with logos, radio and battery. This set is still in progress, so other details may be added before it is released. Watch this space for more details. Designed for the Tamiya kit, but will work in any 1/32 D model Mustang kit.

All three of these sets will be released later in August. they are not ready for pre-order yet. They will be announced later, complete with images of the production parts, when they are.

Happy modelling! Roy
