Ultracast's latest releases return once
again to the Spitfire - a favourite subject for this Canadian company.
The Spitfire Mks. I, II and V wore a
number of different styles of Rotol and De Havilland propellers and spinners.
Ultracast has now produced four of these variants.
Each set includes a new one-piece
spinner and three separate propeller blades. The prop blades are not keyed, so
you can set the pitch at whatever angle you prefer. However, make sure that all
three propeller blades are at the same angle!
Casting quality is up to Ultracast's
usual high standards.
The set with the Rotol 3-Blade Propeller
for the Spitfire II and V also includes a resin bulge for the Coffman starter.
This small addition will effectively convert Tamiya's Spitfire Mk. I to a Mk.

Ultracast's new prop and spinner sets
are excellent quality accessories for anybody who wants to accurately depict
their Spitfire with these components. Check your references carefully and you
might be surprised to see how many Spitfires wore these propellers and spinners!
Thanks to Kevin at
Ultracast for the review samples.
