For: Hasegawa kit


$12.95 MSRP


Scott Van Aken

This particular set of resin wheels from BarracudaCast are main and nose wheels for any 1/32 Me-262. It comes with both ribbed and smooth nose wheels. This set also includes pressure valves for use on the main wheels. Only two are needed, but two spares are also included. The set should also include a section of black wire, but that was missing from the review set. Easy enough to replace with the wire in bread ties.

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. 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.
