As part of their latest batch of new releases, BarracudaCast is offering theee new sets of resin replacement wheels for 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk.I - IX kits. These are the five slot and Z-Block style and covered hub.

 

 

These new wheels will be suitable for a wide selection of 1/48 scale Spitfire kits.

 

 

BarracudaCast's new resin wheels are beautifully detailed. The tyres feature smooth tread with raised lettering on the sidewalls and crisp detail on the inner and outer hubs. Subtle textures are also cast onto the sidewalls of the tyres.

The bottom of the tyres are subtly bulged and flattened.

 

 

Casting and detail is up to BarracudaCast's usual high standards my samples too.
