Ultracast has added a new variation on the Mustang seat theme to their range of resin accessories.

This new 1/48 scale set now includes two seats for late Mustangs (P-51D and K variants) and they are beautifully detailed. In common with their earlier Mustang seats these parts feature subtle detail including bolt heads and the tubular frame, plus a textured backrest cast in place. Unlike the earlier releases, this seat does not have a harness moulded on. This will suit modellers who prefer photo-etched harnesses but who would still like to benefit from Ultracast's excellent attention to detail.

These resin seats, with their cast-on harness and crisp detail, look terrific when they are carefully painted and will be a very noticeable feature in your P-47 cockpit.
