BarracudaCast BR 32032: P-51 Block Tread Tires
This set continues the run on different tires from BarracudaCast. These are specifically designed for the bit Tamiya P-51D Mustang. As most of you know, this kit comes with rubber tires. Not everyone likes rubber as they are difficult to paint/weather and in the past, this material splits with age. Now you have a resin replacement, this set being the block tread, which was a less frequently seen pattern, but still relatively commonly used. Those who are more into the Mustang can tell you why all the different patterns, but this one is definitely different from the more standard diamond pattern. The resin is superbly cast and one can easily remove the excess resin film with a hobby knife. No instructions for this one as they are a direct replacement for the kit part.
If you are spending the loot for this big WWII kit, you might as well spend a bit more for this great upgrade piece.
