Since the invention of the internal combustion engine the need for channeling exhaust was a resultant bi-product. The answer was an exhaust trumpet. It was little more than heavy gauge metal tubing that consisted of 6 - 9 individually formed pieces welded together. They attached to the top of the cylinders using a typical gasket, flange and twin bolt set up. Its purpose was to guide expelled exhaust gasses away from the motor and the open cockpit area of the aircraft.
Barracuda Studios gives us this simple one part resin upgrade set that replaces the kit exhaust manifolds for the Wing nut Wings 1:32 Pfalz D.XII. Once removed from its casting block, it is a drop fit for the original kit part. It is a quick and easy upgrade that will add more detail to the already beautiful engine in these highly detailed kits.
