Roy Sutherland has sent the following information and images of the latest releases in his range of accessories, which are available to order now:

Barracuda Studios is proud to announce 4 new resin sets in 1/32nd scale.

These new sets were debuted in very limited numbers at the IPMS/UK National convention earlier this month, and are now ready for the rest of the world!

The PCM Tempest Mk.V is a very nice and accurate injection molded kit. It is a short run kit, but with a little extra attention, it can be built into a superb replica. My love for the Tempest runs deep, so I have come up with a number of quick and easy upgrades to make it really shine. The intake ring and seat are very visible components, so our new resin parts add real bang for the buck.

BR32141 1:32 Scale Typhoon, Tempest Mk V Intake Ring



This set consists of an accurate one piece, seamless resin carburettor intake duct and shroud. It replaces the somewhat crude multi-part duct found in the otherwise very nice PCM Tempest V. Also fitted to many Typhoons and other Tempest V kits.


BR32142 1:32 Scale Typhoon and Tempest Seat with Backpad



This set features a super detailed, accurate resin seat with quilted backpad. Even the open seat back and supporting springs are represented. Created from close study of an actual seat. For the PCM Tempest V and other Tempest kits. Also perfect for the 32nd Revell Typhoon.

Don't forget our 3 Tempest wheels sets, released back in August. These are big improvements over the kit parts as well, and allow you to build any Tempest V, from the Series I to Postwar.

BR32140 1:32 Scale Typhoon, Tempest Series 1 Mainwheels
BR32124 1:32 Scale 32" 4-Slot Mainwheels - Smooth Tread
BR32125 1:32 Scale 32" 4-Slot Mainwheels - Block Tread


Finally, the Meng 1/32 Me-163 has just been released. A superbly engineered kit with some less than stellar rubber wheels have been replaced by a our new resin mainwheels. These wheels are a simple press fit replacement and are faithful replicas of an actual Me-163 mainwheel.

BR32148 1:32 Scale Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet Mainwheels



Super detailed, accurate resin plain tread mainwheels as fitted to the Me 163's jettisonable takeoff dolly. Features unique Me-1663 hub design, delicate tire beads and manufacturer logo in outline style and raised tire data. Designed for the Meng and Hasegawa kits.

All products are in stock and ready to order.


Happy modelling! Roy
