Scale: 1/48
Price: each USD$7.95 from Ultracast website (plus shipping and handling)
Contents and Media: Two parts in cream-coloured resin.
Review Type: FirstLook
Advantages: Great detail; perfect casting; realistic effect of backrest and harness drape; easy removal from casting block; also appropriate for Arado Ar 234.

Ultracast's latest seat release is for 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Me 262 models.

Two seats are included in this set. They should be applicable to the Dragon/DML/Italeri, Revell-Monogram and Tamiya kits. They will also be suitable for 1/48 scale Arado Ar 234 models.

In common with Ultracast's other seats, the harness is cast in place. The drape is very convincing and will look great under a coat of paint. The backrest cushion is also depicted.

The casting block is connected via a couple of thin resin wafers. These can be sliced off and cleaned up in seconds.

This is another useful accessory from Ultracast that will look great in the open cockpit of your Me 262, or through the plexiglas nose of an Arado Ar 234.


Thanks to Kevin at Ultracast for the review sample
