BarracudaCast BR 72274: Shackleton MR.2/AEW.2 Wheels

For: Airfix & Revell 1/72 kit


$7.95 MSRP

This nice wheel set is for the new Airfix 1/72 Shackleton MR2. Revell is releasing an AEW.2 variant and I have to wonder if Revell and Hornby went into partnership to produce these two planes. If not, it is a bit odd that two different companies would produce what is a relatively obscure aircraft, though they did pick different variants. Anyway, the set is superbly cast and offers detail you won't get with injected plastic. A nice set that is a direct replacement for the kit bits from the look of it.

As with all BarracudaCast resin, the detail is top rate and the castings flawless.
