FirstLook

 

Adding to its range of accessories for Meng Model's 1/48 scale EA-18G Growler, Eduard has now released a set of resin wheels.

Inside the plastic bag are six parts in conventionally cast grey coloured resin, a masking sheet and instructions.

 

 

The resin wheels have lovely detail cast in place.

 

 

The main wheels feature subtle flattening and bulging. The tyres are cast with a radial tread pattern with raised sidewall detail and lettering.

The inner hubs of the main wheels are cast as separate parts. They are keyed with the main wheel parts for correct alignment.

 

 

The two nose wheels are included. They are cast in one piece each.

 

 

Casting blocks will best be tackled with a razor saw.

Self-adhesive painting masks are also supplied.

 

 

Instructions are supplied on a single folded paper sheet.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These wheels will be a luxurious finishing touch for your 1/48 scale Meng Growler.

At less that USD$10.00 they won't break the bank either.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples.
