This resin set includes:

  • one Spitfire drop tank

  • one mounting rack

  • photo etch braces

There are 2 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 mostly seen without drop tanks, but for long range missions, the drop tanks were critical.  This very well done set gives you the option to outfit your Spitfire with the long range drop tank.

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