For:  1/48 Hawker Tempest


$7.95 MSRP

BarracudaCast offers a number of replacement wheels for the recent Eduard 1/48 Hawker Tempest. This particular set is for the later builds and has block tread instead of the usual smooth tires. I've never understood how these planes, which often operated from grass strips, could keep from sliding around on wet grass or muddy landing fields when the brakes were applied.  While designed for the Eduard kit, but can easily fit others out there, including the older Eduard releases. This is an easy replacement for the kit bits.
