Spitfire Exhausts (Fishtail)
1:48 Eduard Brassin

This set arrives in Eduard's standard slim clamshell box, and contains six pieces of resin, four of which contain four individual exhaust stacks each. The new IX kit from Eduard has hollow exhaust stacks, so why would you want a resin replacement? When you see the weld detail running along the length and around the lips, you will realise that they are actually worth the effort, and as a bonus, you get a replacement section of the engine block into which they are inserted individually, which as well as being more detailed is more simple than the two-part kit assembly. Removing the stacks from their casting blocks is the work of seconds, and a straight saw cut will remove the block from the engine section, and then part G44 from the kit is used to finish off the rear of the piece.

Conclusion
When painted sympathetically with appropriate rusty, or heat discoloured shades, these exhausts should look as close as you can get to the real thing. Well worth the effort for those wanting the ultimate in detail.

Very highly recommended.
