The most prominent feature when looking in the open canopy of a model
aircraft will usually be the pilot's seat. With their growing range of resin
replacement seats in 1/48 scale, Ultracast make sure that this feature will look
its best under the gaze of judges and other admirers.
This range now includes seats for the Avenger, the Dauntless and the
These seats are cast beautifully in light cream coloured resin. The delicate
armrests and frames of the Avenger seats have a whisper of almost transparent
flash. As is the norm with Ultracast's seats, these sets are connected to the
casting block with two remarkably thin strips of resin. A sharp hobby knife will
easily take care of removal and clean-up.
The Avenger sets include two pilot's seats. Optional sets are available for
early war models (with lap harness) and the standard model (with lap and
shoulder harnesses). Each seat features integrally cast rear frame and armrests.

Only the full harness is offered for the Helldiver's pilot seat. An
observer's seat rounds out this offering.

create a very realistic and three-dimensional effect on all the seats
I personally feel that Ultracast replacement seats are some of the
best, simplest and most effective accessories available. They will dress
up your model's cockpit with a minimum of fuss. These latest releases
continue Ultracast's tradition of fine quality accessories for interesting
modelling subjects in 1/48 scale.
