1/24 Scale Spitfire Mk 1 Manual Undercarriage Control AIP24-001
In stock: 9

Our version comprises three printed pieces, with axles (and optionally pushrods) to be created with brass tubing or wire. Carefully assembled, the pump lever can swing freely and the selector lever can move and lock into each of the two detents.
