This latest new set from Ultracast starts a run of FW-190 wheels in 1/48 scale. This set is for the earlier planes with spoked wheels and in this case, there are smooth tires. The set is superbly molded and on easy to remove pour stubs. One simply paints the wheel, removes it from the stub and installs it on the model being built after ensuring that the axle hole is drilled out to the proper size (though it looks about right in the image).
