FirstLook


This is a second resin engine done by ToRo and follows from their previous release of a Skoda Bristol Mercury engine for the Mirage PZL P.11c.

The set contains 34 cleanly cast parts, most of which are a direct replacement for the kitís parts. The complete engine consists of a crankcase, 14 cylinders and exhaust manifolds. These are accompanied by all the piping and wiring. A new engine cowling is also included in this set.

This is a beautifully presented engine, which is a welcome addition to the Mirage Hobby kit. I especially liked the new exhaust manifolds, which I think are essential replacements for the kit parts (I must admit I struggled a bit with the ones provided in a Mirage kit).

All in all, I am looking forward to building another Greek P.24 with ToRo engine.

Highly Recommended.
