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

BarracudaCast has released three new sets of resin replacement wheels for Messerschmitt Bf 109 E and F kits. These new wheels will be suitable for any 1/72, 1/48 or 1/32 scale Bf 109 E or F kit currently available. They will also be appropriate for the Bf 109 T, and for the Bf 109 G-2 (the one without the bulges on the top of the wings). I'm pretty sure they'll be fine for the early Jumo Bf 109s too - the A to D series.

The new resin wheels are all beautifully detailed. Recessed radial tread and raised lettering is especially impressive, and detail throughout is crisp. Check out the crisp details and fine ribs on the wheel hubs too - just gorgeous.

 

 

Each wheel is supplied with the bottom of the tyres subtly bulged and flattened.

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

Specifically, the three replacement resin wheels sets are:

1/72 scale

BR72438 - Bf 109 E/F Main Wheels w Ribbed Tyres


1/48 scale

BR48437 - Bf 109 E/F Main Wheels w Ribbed Tyres


1/32 scale

BR32436 - Bf 109 E/F Main Wheels w Ribbed Tyres


These are all simple yet highly desirable finishing touches for your Messerschmitt Bf 109 E and F projects.

All Highly Recommended.
