Review by Steve Bamford on July 26 2007


Contents of kit shown above.  These replacement seats were designed from copies of the original manufacturer's drawings.  They are extremely fragile and are only recommended for experienced modellers.


Here's a new set of resin 1/48 Mitsubishi A6M Zero Seats from Ultracast.   These seats replace the kit seats which are inaccurate to say the least.  These seats have the fine detail and will look quite sharp on your next Mitsubishi A6M Zero.  You are to use the resin seats instead of the kit seats.  These seats have resin seatbelts.  You can also buy resin seats with resin seatbelts from Ultracast.  

There are 2 seats in each set.  Clean up is very minimal and the seats come attached to the casting blocks with very easy to manage connection points and removal is easily done with no loss of detail.  The detail level and casting quality is flawless. 

The seats are a major focal point on models and these will really improve the look of the undercarriage in your next Mitsubishi A6M Zero.  You can order these seats directly from this webpage http://www.ultracast.ca/products/48/185/default.htm


I'd like to thank Kevin at Ultracast for sending me these review sample.
