High quality production.

Suitable MiG-21 versions not specified.

The sets reviewed here each come in a re-sealable cellophane bag with card stiffener.

 

 

No instructions are provided as none are needed. In each case the recommended kit is listed as “XXX” on the backing card, since wheels will suit any brand of kit.

 

 

The quality of casting is very good, and I have used images from Res-Im’s website as they are a fair reflection of the contents.

I have one concern regarding the MiG-21 wheels since I know these differed between early and late versions. As it happens, Res-Im lists a MiG-21Late  wheel set as well as the set reviewed here, which is presumably early. It would be helpful if Res-Im provided a list of MiG-21 versions each wheel set is suitable for.

 

 

Conclusion

 

All of the wheels are nicely detailed and will no doubt be superior to injected kit items. I am happy to recommend them.

Thanks to Resin Improvement for the review sample.
