Red Roo Models has released several new accessories and
decals relating to P-51 Mustangs in recent months. These releases
RRR48135 - CAC CA-18 Mustang
built CAC CA-18 Mustangs were fitted with a moulded plywood seat
specific to this variant. red Roo Models has produced a resin replica of
this seat in 1/48 scale, including a cast-on Aussie harness.
The seat is cleanly cast as a single piece and is well
detailed. The resin part is almost ready to use, with only a small
casting block to be removed.
In addition to the unique seat, Australian-built
Mustangs also differed in several cockpit details. These included a
locally sourced radio of different design, the fuel tank and the pilot's
fuel gauge. Four pages of instructions (on two A4 sheets) details these
differences and also provides information about interior colours of
these interesting aircraft.
The information about RAAF cockpit configuration and
colours is almost worth the price of this set by itself. The inclusion
of the actual resin seat makes it a must-have for any modeller planning
to build a 1/48 scale Australian manufactured CA-18 Mustang.
RRM48101 - RAAF WWII Harnesses &
strictly for a Mustang, but certainly appropriate for a range of WWII
RAAF aircraft, is thus 1/48 scale harness and accessory set.
The main element of this small photo-etched fret are
three sets of harness - a Sutton harness, a generic British harness and
an American style harness. Bonus parts on the fret include various ring
and bead gunsights, mirrors, knobs, levers and quadrants.
This is a handy generic set that modellers will find
useful on a wide selection of WWII Allied fighter aircraft.
