Scott Van Aken

It has been a while since I have had the opportuntity to review any items from BarracudaCast and so it was a nice surprise to find a package with some of their newer items. This particular set are block tread tires and wheels for the 1/32 P-47 Thunderbolt. These wheels have optional center sections so you can choose either the spoked hubs or those with wheel covers on them. The set is designed for the Hasegawa kit, but will work on the Trumpeter kit (which really needs replacement wheels) as well as older Revell kit.

The resin molding is flawless and most of the bits can be removed from the sprue with a sharp hobby knife. No mold release agent is used so these are ready to paint. The set comes with instructions. Do yourself a favor, and pick up a set of these wheels and their tires. I think you will be quite pleased that you did.

My thanks to BarracudaCast for the review set. Visit them at for more info and to order your set.
