True Details | 32012: 1/32 Ki-84 Frank Wheels - Smooth Tread

Reviewed by Kevin Williams

Designed as a straight up replacement for kit provided wheels, these Ki-84 wheel/tire combinations are just the ticket if you're looking for replacements for the kit wheels, eliminating the chore of having to clean up the circumferential seam. Cast in a yellowish resin, as is a Squadron standard, they are air bubble and blemish free, with a slight flattening/bulging of the tires that may be a wee bit excessive, but still look OK to me.


All things considered, I see these as a worthwhile addition to your Hayate (Frank) kit, should you see the need.

This product is recommended for overall quality and detail.

Thanks to my wallet for the review sample.
