The four new sets that have just been released cover the Spitfire Mk.VIII, Mk.IX and Mk.XVI, and there are two sets, one with a forward facing torque link, the other with the more rare aft facing links. Both include four and five spoked hubs. The Hellcat set includes full wheel wells, length corrected struts and three types of tires (channel, '+' and brick pattern tread). These three sets are designed for the Eduard line of kits, and are in 1:48th scale, as indicated by the product codes. The fourth set covers the Tamiya F-14A, B and D models, and are completely retooled. They still include all three main hub patterns (early, mid-production and late), but have vastly improved detail, are easier to use, and include clear printed parts for the landing/taxi light. The detail has been enhanced to a new level. The nose strut is a full length affair now, too. These sets can be purchased via our e-shop.
