FirstLook

 

Eduard has released a set of wheels for the recent Airfix 1/48 scale Vampire Mk.3.

Inside the resealable plastic bag are three parts in light grey resin plus a masking sheet and instructions.

 

 

The resin parts have lovely detail cast in place.

 

 

The main wheels feature subtle flattening and bulging. The tyres are cast with a radial tread pattern with raised sidewall detail and lettering.

The nose wheel is the solid anti-shimmy type.

All wheels are cast in one piece each.

 

 

Casting blocks will best be tackled with a razor saw.

Instructions are supplied on a single folded paper sheet.

 

 

Conclusion

 

These wheels will be a luxurious and easy finishing touch for your Airfix 1/48 scale Vampire F.3.

Thanks to Eduard for the samples.
