Coinciding with their A-4K Kahu conversion, Barracuda Studios has also released an Intake and Exhaust Set.

 

 

This will be suitable for a range of Skyhawk variants, not just the Post-Kahu upgrade. They should fit all Trumpeter 1/32 scale Skyhawk kits and may be adapted for the older Hasegawa kits too.

Barracuda Studios' 1/32 Aero 1D 300 Gallon Drop Tanks comprise just four parts in grey 3D printed resin.

These depict a new, accurate engine compressor face clearly visible through the kit intakes and new engine rear. This is an improvement over the kit part.

 

 

Also included are a new turbine face and complete jet exhaust pipe with detailed nozzle.

Detail is excellent and 3D printing quality is perfect.

 

 

Cleanup and assembly look to be very straightforward, with positive locating points to help ensure trouble-free construction.

 

 

This is a high quality and accurate intake and exhaust replacement for Trumpeter's 1/32 scale A-4 Skyhawk family.
