This set contains
five resin wheels which are meant to replace those that come with
the Academy, and to a lesser extent Hasegawa, kit. The Academy wheels
are not that bad, but the Hasegawa wheels are underscale.
These wheels carry the very common
cross-country type of tyre for Schwimmwagens, which were unavailable
to Braille scale modelers until this release. Note that these wheels
were occasionally also fitted to the Kübelwagen.
Casting is near perfect and detail is very crisp. The way the wheels are attached to the casting blocks avoids the loss of too much detail as the small "flange" only covers the centre of the tyre. In this way you will only need to rescribe the center of the tyre thread pattern.
Thanks to MK72 for the review samples.
