48056 - Control
control surfaces for the Hasegawa Typhoon are beautifully cast and subtly
sculpted. Fabric rendition is excellent, and details for trim tabs and
hinge points are all in place.
The rounded joining surfaces will make positioning these parts on the
Hasegawa kit a simple matter. You will have to thin and bevel the kit
parts before attaching the control surfaces for the best fit
If you are planning to position the control surfaces on your Hasegawa
Tiffie, Ultracast's resin parts will produce an accurate and reliable
has been much discussion about Moskit metal exhausts, with their scale
thickness and hollow construction. They are undoubtedly clever and very
authentic, but the downside of the Russian exhausts is their metal

Radiator with Dust Filter
additional dust filter was tested in North Africa during 1943, but also
used on the dusty airfields of North-Western Europe in 1944/45.
Check your references carefully. You may need this part to accurately
portray your invasion-front Typhoon
Hasegawa's Typhoon will greatly benefit from these new accessories.
Ultracast's range already includes rockets, drop tanks and other items for the
Typhoon. I imagine that we can expect a seat fairly soon too!
