First Look Review
Tempest Exhausts
Tempest Mk. V & Mk. VI Exhausts

by: Rowan Baylis [ MERLIN ]

Originally published on:

The exhausts supplied with Eduard's Sabre-engined Tempests are by no means bad, but they are completely eclipsed by the new set of resin replacements that Barracuda Studios have released.

The new parts arrive in a zip-lock bag and don't come with any instructions beyond tips for working with resin on the cardboard header.

Item #BR48398 is available now direct from Barracuda Studios
