Contact Resine | Lightning Propellors and Spinners
Reviewed by Chris Sherland
Trumpeter's release of the P-38 Lightning in 2004 was huge news for 1/32 builders. Contact Resine now offers corrected propeller blades and Spinners for the kit.
These are finely crafted and well detailed and offer a much more accurate propeller for the big Lockheed than the parts supplied in the Trumpeter kit.
The blades are the asymmetrical type and have sleeves molded in at their base. The spinners have an accurate profile and are more detailed than the kit parts as well.
The modeler is left to drill holes into the solid spinners to insert the blades, and while this represents only a minor challenge, it will allow the props to be posed in any angle of incidence which is a nice option to have.
The parts are very well cast from subtly detailed masters and our review sample had no flash to speak of and they will require little clean up.
This set of props represents the best choice for replacing the Trumpeter kit props for your big Lightning.
Thanks to Contact Resine for the review sample.
