Jerry Rutman | 1/32 P-47 Thunderbolt Spoked, Diamond-tread Wheel Set
Reviewed by Chris Sherland
J Rutman Products has released a new set of 1/32 resin replacement wheels for the P-47 Thunderbolt. These can fit all the 1/32 kits on the market and are direct replacements for the kit parts.
The main wheels are offered as a 3 part assembly: wheel, hub backing, and spoked hub. The tail wheel is a solid resin single piece.
The tread is the diamond pattern and the main wheels have a very subtle weighting effect as well as a "flat spot" for more believable ground contact.
The set is cast well from detailed and accurate masters and includes two main wheels (6 parts) and a single tail wheel.
Thanks to J Rutman Products for the review sample.
