FirstLook

 

The 1:32 HK Model Grand Slam Lancaster is a beautiful model kit that I have had the pleasure to review.

The Grand Slam is modified Lancaster especially in belly and structure and of course on it wheels.

 

 

One point that I make on the review is that the Grand Slam version used the Lincoln wheels that have a large wheel hub.

It's a quite visible detail but back then there were no aftermarket 1:32 Lincoln wheels.

 

 

Well, as John helped me out back then, he thought to release this set with his brand AIMS: a wheel set to Grand Slam and all Post-War Lancaster.
           
The set comes in a small box, with the wheels casted in a single pieces and the interior rims in two pieces (exterior and interior).
           
The resin casting is, as usual, top noch.

The resin is in gray color with good consistence.

The resin blocks will give some work to remove but is the usual work when it comes to work with resin.
           
The surface details are very good. Love the detail of the letters.

The rims details are great and they are in fact much larger that the original wheels.

See how much large is the Grand Slam/Lincoln wheel?

Highly Recommended
 

Thanks to John of AIMS for this review samples.
