F4F-4 Wheels Late
for Eduard kit
Eduard BRASSIN Print, 1/48 scale
Reviewed by Brett Green
Eduard has released a set of wheels for their recent 1/48 scale F4F-4 Wildcat.
These are the late version wheels
Inside the stout little cardboard box are two parts cast conventionally in grey resin, two parts in grey 3D printed resin, three parts in off-whte 3D printed resin, a masking sheet and instructions.
The wheels all have lovely detail cast in place. All wheels are cast in one piece each.
The tyres feature subtle flattening and bulging . The tyres are cast with a diamond tread pattern.
Hub, brake and tyre detail is just lovely. The sidewalls feature raised lettering on both sides. Note that the kit tyres are not bulged or flattened, nor do they feature sidewall lettering.
Casting blocks for the main wheels will best be tackled with a razor saw.
A pair of 3D printed outer wheel covers is a nice touch.
Three choices of tail wheel and struts are offered (the kit only offers two).
Photo-etched wheel covers are included too.
Self-adhesive die-cut painting masks are supplied for all the wheels.
Instructions are supplied on a single folded paper sheet.
These resin wheels will be a nice easy and noticeable detail upgrade for your Eduard 1/48 scale F4F-4 Wildcat.
Thanks to Eduard for the sample.
