Designed to replace the kit lower sidewall for the
Tamiya Spitfire VIII, IX, and XVI. This set also
includes the missing remote contactor. The new resin
sidewall has been molded with all the complex
plumbing of the windscreen de-icer system, as well
as the oxygen line. A number of other details have
been added including new stringers with hollowed out
ends and additional electrical wiring. The remote
contactor, missing in the Tamiya kit, was fitted to
all Spitfires until well into 1944. Full color
detailed installation instructions round out this
new set. This set can be modified to fit into any
1/32nd scale Spitfire kit, as the port sidewall
remained virtually the same from Spitfire Mk. I
through the Mk. 24, and all Seafire variants.
