Now this could really test a reviewer’s creativity. How can one fill a whole article by simply saying that ULTRACAST has produced a delicate and very nicely done Spitfire seat?

I could mention that the openings in the side and the back are cleanly done, and only the tip of a #11 blade will be needed to clean them up. I could also mention that by not having the harness cast as part of the seat, the modeler is free to use any available aftermarket set and arrange it as one sees fit. The modeler can even put a figure in the seat.

Oh, did I mention they were cast in light cream colored resin?

Thankfully, I don’t get paid by the word (hey, you don't get paid at all! ed).

Oh yes - highly recommended.


Thanks to Kevin at Ultracast for the review sample
