This final set for the Hellcat or the Corsair consist of 32" x 8" wheels of a later style than the previous sets. These would be applicable for late war and post-war builds. The two sets in this batch are Ultracast 48192 with radial tread and Ultracast 48193 with smooth tread. They are ready to go with only the need to remove them from the block, paint them, and drill out the axle placement hole to fit the kit on which you are using them.

The wheels are superbly molded without a trace of molding flaws. Ultracast products are always top notch and I've never had one with any sort of glitch. Removing the wheels from the resin base should be quite easy to do; a razor saw making quick work of it.

These wheels are applicable to any 1/48 F4U and F6F that uses the late wheels, which would be about all of the late production aircraft, including the Korean War era Corsairs.
