1/24 LSP planes

Recommended Posts

Hi All, in looking at the new Airscale bits for the Airfix Hellcat I was noticing that certain switches need to be added.  It reminded me that there are a ton of 1/24 scale after market bits that might be useful for your Hellcat build.  I am linking just toggle switches but if you starting looking for automotive subject matter there is some amazing stuff out there that can be used for 1/24 planes:

Top Studio, KA models and Model Factory hiro supply a lot of bits in 1/24, 1/20 and 1/12 scale that can fit various uses on bigger LSP’s like 1/24 scale.

Ordered another 2 lots of the Top Studio 1/20 toggle switches last week in readiness. More than enough for sure but I can guarantee some will ping off the tweezers into oblivion with no hope of finding them and the switches sometimes seem to be hard to find over here.

in addition to toggle switches, 1/24 car accessories like radiator hoses, hose clamps, spark plug wires, battery cables, etc., have wide application to 1/24 aircraft.  I have a shoebox filled with car parts that I keep for detailing aircraft.

Yeah, I use the resin bits and pieces like hose connectors and whatnot too. The braided wires work well for the shielded cables found in some aircraft cockpits. More so since they are already the right colour out of the packet. Be warned though, super glue darkens them so be sparing with the stuff I’d thats what you’re using to fix them in place. Next time I’m trying PVA.

No more expensive than dedicated detail sets I've bought for planes.
