These vac-formed parts are designed to replace the Eduard part according to the card backing but will fit other kits as well.

 

 

I was not aware of an issue with the Eduard kits but this nicely blown part will certainly look nicer than any kit part for clarity and thickness.

 

 

Two canopies are provided and they come in the familiar zip-lock clear sleeve with a card backing and will require careful separation from the backing.

Recommended to the Spitfire modeller in the ‘One True Scale’.

Thanks to Barracuda Studios for the images and information
