While Revell got much correct with its large-scale Spitfire Mk.IX, one problem area concerned the seat, which lacked the rear armour plate and accurate back pad.

Step forward Roy Sutherland’s Barracudacast, which has released a replacement resin unit, with the added benefit of adding further detail to the cockpit. It comprises just two components, a single-piece seat with integrally cast rear cushioning, parachute recess, and strap holes on the side panels, plus a separate armour plate. Clear instructions ensure  proper installation, including notes on how to achieve the best possible fit. This is a much-needed improvement to Revell’s 1/32 Spitfire Mk.IX, and one that also offers great value.
