Barracuda Studios | BR32124 British 4-Slot 32" Mainwheels - Plain Tread
Reviewed by Ray Peterson
A recent release from BarracudaCast is this accessory for the PCM - and any future - 1/32nd Tempest V, Series II and later variant kits. The set includes two main wheels proper for the WWII era cast in single parts. No instruction sheet is included, and is not needed. These mainwheels are smooth – no tread. They are of the 4-slot variety.
The tires have fine manufacturer markings on the sidewalls, which is cast very crisply. The mainwheels need to be sawed from the casting block, creating a small flat spot to rest the wheels on. The wheels may need some additional drilling to fit on the kit axles.
In conclusion, these wheels are beautifully done. They will look great on the kit and they should not take much work to fit.
Thanks to BarracudaCals for the review set.
