Recently you read a review on someMossie bits produced by Ultracast. The reviewer was quite pleased about thequality of the products offered. Just the other day, a small parcel arrived atmy door from the Ultracast folks. Inside were a number of goodies, many of themfor the 1/48 ICM Spitfire. This is the first of a series of reviews of what wasin that box. 

Today, we take a look at Spitfire wheels. Those of you who are into theSpitfire, realize that over the development of the aircraft, there were a numberof different wheels produced for them. Now you have a superb set of replacementsfor the kit ones from Ultracast. The quality of the moldings is truly superb.Not a blemish anywhere to be found. They are flattened and much better, notgrossly bulged as one sees from a certain US company's products.


Four sets of wheels weresent:

 As you can see by the enlarged images to the right, these wheels are superblydone, with fine detailing that is really top notch. Any of these will really adda lot to your 1/48 Spitfire. There will be an upcoming build article using anumber of the items that Ultracast has sent. Stay tuned!
