Thanks to Eduard/Brassin for providing more of their excellent aftermarket parts for IPMS USA to review, and to IPMS leadership for sending it my way.

Not much to say on this one; a pair of early Spitfire Mk 1 “kidney”-shaped merlin exhausts with the straight tube exhaust port at the ends of them already hollow-cast. The pour stub is at the base of the exhausts, so these become convenient handles for painting and handling.

Designed for the Airfix new-mold Spitfire Mk 1, these are simple to use (as usual). Primer then paint while on the pour stub, carefully remove with a sharp knife, install with superglue. The kit items are acceptable, but these Eduard items are a real timesaver.

A fantastic-looking upgrade… Thanks to Eduard/Brassin for this set!
