Hi fokls,

Firstly my apologies I didn't get down to MK last weekend, it was my intention but life got in the way.

This is possibly a question for Nigel.

Do you know if Tamiya or any other manufacturer make available separate spurs of their 1/32 scale Mossie or Spitfire Engines?

I'm looking for something to use as a starting point for the engines in my MAS Boat, but at reeasonable cost.

Any thoughts form the flying folks?

Thanks

Alan I think only Roden sell plastic engines separately but may be mistaken. You may want to try contacting the importer and seeing if they will sell you the engine sprue.
Your other but more costly option is the resin AM route with loads of engines available.

Hi Luciano,

Do you have links for the resin ones, it's an area I never much delve into (engines that is) , sort fo who makes what at the best price.

Thanks

Hi Luciano,

Many thanks

This is one they do that looks reasonably close.
