As part of their expanding large-scale range, BarracudaCast is offering a new set of resin replacement wheels for 1/24 scale Hawker Hurricane kits.

 

 

These new wheels will be suitable for the Airfix or Trumpeter kits, which feature pretty awful vinyl tyres.

BarracudaCast's new resin wheels are beautifully detailed. Recessed radial tread and raised lettering is especially impressive, and detail throughout is crisp.

 

 

The bottom of the tyres are subtly bulged and flattened.

Separate uplock lugs are also included plus a spare. This is a nice touch.

Casting and detail is up to BarracudaCast's usual superlative standards my sample too.

 

 

These wheels will be a simple yet highly desirable finishing touch for your 1/24 scale Hawker Hurricane project.

Thanks to Barracuda Studios for the images and information
