Eduard Brassin 1/72 Spitfire Exhausts (Round)
By Jim Bates
To compliment Eduard's recent 1/72 Spitfire kits, they have issued a ton of brass etch and resin. This exhaust stack set consists of two resin parts cast in grey resin. They are direct replacements for the kit parts, but each stack is hollow. No need to pull the little drill out of the tool box.
The exhaust stacks in this set are rounded, not the fishtail exhausts fitted to most wartime Spitfires. The round stacks were usually fitted to post-war Spitfire Mk. XVIs and were also quite commonly used on warbird Spitfires in the 70s and 80s before a plan was put in place to remanufacture fishtail stacks. A similar exhaust stack was fitted to the Boulton Paul Balliol, so if you have a Special Hobby kit handy...
I would like to thank Eduard for the review sample.
