FirstLook

 

Designed for any of the kits of this popular subject ( Academy, FROG, Heller and others), and timed for the release of the latest Airfix kit.

 

 

The three resin parts will replace the kit parts and are far more delicately detailed than their plastic equivalents.

 

 

Coming in the familiar Brengun clear sleeve with a black protective card and instructions, each set contains the main wheels and a tail wheel. The parts differ in the styles of the wheel hubs and these are nicely detailed.

 

 

All are beautifully cast in grey resin with solid casting blocks and fine webs for ease of separation. Wheels have a flattened effect that accurately reflects the real things.

 

 

They may also fit any of the derivatives of the Tempest but you need to check this out before adding them to a model.

 

 

These will enhance any model of the Tempest and come highly recommended.

 

 

Conclusion

This is a very useful set that will enhance any model of the Tempest family.

Thanks to Brengun for the review sample.
