1/48 Aircraft Seats
Reviewed by Brett Green
This Canadian company has once again demonstrated its commitment to Commonwealth subjects by providing the modeller with a Sutton-harness equipped Kittyhawk seat option. This is great news for anyone contemplating a Kittyhawk in Australian, Canadian or RAF service. The other new release is a set of P-40 seats with the standard US style harness. Both seats are appropriate for a wide range of Tomahawks and Kittyhawks.
At the risk of repeating myself, the method of casting is the same as their previous replacement seats. Each seat is cast in a single piece on to a block via three thin connectors. A hobby knife will be sufficient to remove and clean up the join.
Casting is once again flawless.
I really like the depiction of a seat harness as an integral casting on a resin seat. The drape is realistic and painting is a breeze. Highly recommended.

Thanks to Kevin at Ultracast for the review samples.
