FirstLook

 

Eduard has cast its attention to the recent Airfix 1/48 scale Buccaneer S.2C/D kits with a new wheel setr.

Inside the sturdy little cardboard box are three parts in grey coloured cast resin plus a masking sheet and instructions.

 

 

The resin wheels have lovely detail cast in place on the tyres, the hubs and the brakes.

 

 

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

The nose wheel is nicely done too.

All wheels are cast as one piece each in conventionally cast grey coloured resin.

Casting blocks will best be tackled with a razor saw.

Self-adhesive die-cut painting masks for the wheels are also included.

 

 

Instructions are supplied on a single folded paper sheet.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These wheels will be a luxurious finishing touch for your Airfix 1/48 scale Buccaneer.

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

Thanks to Eduard for the samples.
