Often times the wheels that come with plastic military vehicle kits leave something to be desired in terms of detailing. Either they are vinyl and difficult to paint/weather, or they are two or more pieces of injection molded plastic and so have issues with either fit or cleaning seams.

Signifer provides an option for those who are building the Revell 1/35 SPPZ-2 'Luch' APC. This set consists of eight resin wheels that are exquisitely molded and detailed. It is a simple matter to do a small amount of additional sanding to the pour stub area and rescribe if you wish. Most will simply have this area at the bottom of the wheel when installed. The only other requirement aside from paint, is to drill out the axle placement hole. Like all resin parts, you may run across a tiny pin hole, but in most cases, it can easily be filled with primer or some other thin material.

A superlative resin upgrade set  that you should seriously consider. These are available direct from the link below.

My thanks to Signifer for the review copy.
