Ultracast's latest set of replacement exhausts are for Tamiya's excellent 1/48 scale Dornier Do 335 kits, Two sets of exhausts are supplied in the bag; one set for each engine.

The exhausts will be suitable for either the single seat Do 335A-0/1 "Arrow", the two-seater Do 335A-12 "Anteater", or even for a "B" conversion. It is important to note that each set of exhausts is different. The pair for the rear engine feature a shrouded stack, while the six stacks for each side of the front engine are unshrouded.

These flattened exhausts are always more challenging for the modeler to drill out than rounded pipes, so this style of hollow exhaust is especially welcome.

Each exhaust is attached to its individual casting block via a thin strip of resin. This will be very simple to remove with a few swipes of a scriber or a hobby knife.

Recommended for anyone building either of the  Tamiya 1/48 scale Do 335s.

Thanks to Kevin at Ultracast for the review samples.
