Contact Resine | CR24018: 1/24 Fw 190D-9 Wheels

Reviewed by Chris Sherland

Contact Resine has released a new set of weighted wheels for the Trumpeter 1/24 Fw190 D-9. These wheels can also be used with the 1/24 Airfix kit when converted from A-5 to D-9.

The wheels are expertly cast in tan resin from beautiful masters and are both accurate and a huge improvement over the kit wheels. They represent the smooth tread wheels that are seen on many "Dora" period pictures. The wheels include a mounting hole that is the same diameter as the kit axle so replacement should be a breeze. The weighting effect is subtle and looks very convincing.

The set is shipped in a simple bag with no instructions.

Recommended for modelers looking to enhance their 1/24 scale Dora kits with accurate and well made wheels.

Thanks to Design and Marketing International for the review sample.
