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

Barracuda Studios is proud to announce 7 new products. This batch marks a big expansion of the 72nd scale line with six new sets, with more to come in the next few months. One new set in 32nd scale rounds out the batch.

The Corsair/Hellcat wheels are long overdue, as they allow the 72nd modeller to have properly proportioned and super detailed wheels for all versions of the Corsair, from the prototype through the FG-1, including air racers and warbirds, as well as all Hellcats.

The Typhoon style 5 slot wheels in 72nd and 32nd fill a need, as they are extremely accurate in both size and detail. We did a lot of research to get these right! They will be coming later in 48th scale as well.
