Bedford 'Palm' Pattern Tyre Set
Kit # ROG72006 Review by Doug Chaltry- 172tankmodeler(at)comcast(dot)net
This is my first product from the cooperative effort between RetrokiT-GB and OKB Grigorov, and I guarantee it won't be the last. It's a pretty straight forward set: five replacement wheels for the IBG Bedford QL truck models. Granted, the wheels that come in IBG are pretty darned good themselves; some of the best wheels I've seen in plastic. But there were several different tread patterns seen on the Bedford trucks, and these two cooperating firms have provided sets for three of them. This set previewed here is the 'Palm' pattern. The resin replacement wheels were based on the original wheels from the kit, so the wheel is the same with only the rubber tire being new. The total diameter of the tire is unchanged from the kit tire, so this will be a straight up replacement with no modification needed.

The quality of the molding and casting is exceptional, and there were no blemishes in my set, other than a little bit of paper thin flash that can easily be scraped away. Very nice set.
