Contact Résine has added wheels for 1/32 scale P-47 kits plus Trumpeter's 1/32 scale Dauntless family to their growing range of accessories.

The Dauntless set comprises the main wheels and a replacement tail wheel assembly. These will be very much appreciated by modellers who do not like the vinyl tyres supplied with Trumpeter's kits.



Two styles of P-47 main wheels are offered - covered and six spokes. These will be suitable as replacements for the plastic items in Hasegawa's and Revell's large scale offerings, or the new Trumpeter Razorback.



All the wheels are crisply detailed and perfectly cast, with almost no cleanup required before painting and installation. Each wheel is subtly bulged and flattened.

The resin wheels will also prove more durable than Trumpeter's rubber tyres and are, in my opinion, easier to work with and paint.

Contact Résine's latest batch of resin replacement wheels will be a welcome addition to your big P-47 or SBD models, and a drop-fit enhancement too.
