This resin set includes:

  • Spitfire Mk. I engine

  • engine compartment firewall

  • frame surrounding engine (resin)

  • photo etch frame for mounting engine cowling

  • 5 engine cowling panels

  • engine supercharger

  • engine exhausts

  • engine oil tank

  • engine prop shaft

  • engine detail parts

  • 48 resin parts

  • 1 fret of photo etch parts

There are 10 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  The instructions also include painting instructions.

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

The Spitfire is such an elegant machine, but it is the engine that leaves me in awe.  The Rolls Royce V12 engine is a thing of beauty and this set captures every wonder detail beautifully.  This set will give you glorious detail in the engine area.

You can buy this detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
