The cuffs on the propeller blades of Tamiya’s P-51B, P-51D and F-51D kits are somewhat too wide and splayed at the base. Ultracast has now released a set of four replacement propeller blades with corrected cuffs. 

Casting is clean and each blade is perfectly straight on my sample. Locating cutouts are in place to ensure that the new blades will be perfectly aligned when attached to the spinner hub

This is another simple and effective correction set from Ultracast. 


Thanks to Kevin at Ultracast for the review samples.
