BarracudaCast is the resin accessory arm of Roy Sutherland's Barracuda Studios enterprise.

Just in time for HK Models' new 1/32 scale Lancaster kits, BarracudaCast has released two sets of resin replacement wheels. These new wheels will be suitable for all Lnacaster variants.

The new resin wheels are crisply detailed. Both sets have fine raised circumferential detail on the sidewalls.

Each wheel is supplied with the bottom of the tyres subtly bulged and flattened. Due to the sheer size of the wheels, the casting blocks are a bit bigger than usual for a Barracua product, but they will still be quite fast and straightforward to remove and clean up.

Casting and detail is up to BarracudaCast's usual superlative standards on both of my samples.

These sets also correct some noticeable errors with the HK models wheels, which are wrong in cross section and the hubs are lacking both depth and detail.

Specifically, the two replacement resin wheels sets are:

BR32409 - Lancaster Main Wheels - Smooth

 

 

BR48410 - Lancaster Main Wheels - Block Tread

 

 


These are all simple yet highly desirable finishing touches for your big 1/32 scale HK Models Lancaster.
