MDC | CV32032 1/32 Bf109 Standard Fixed Short Tail Wheel (G4, thru K4)
Reviewed by Chris Sherland
MDC is no stranger to detailed resin replacement items, and their new Bf109G4-K4 tail wheel set is a nice addition to their line of accessories for the Messerschmitt.
The set is beautifully cast from accurate and detailed masters in light grey resin. Parts include the wheel itself, fork, and yolk/dust boot. This set is designed to fit the newer Hasegawa 109s but with very little work will fit the old Revells too and offers a more detailed and accurate tailwheel assembly.
The wheel itself features crisp and intricate detail as well as a subtle flat spot for a more convincing sit that is not overdone. If you are looking for a better tailwheel for your Gustav or Kurtfurst, MDC has you covered with this set.
Details and prices can be found on the MDC website.
Thanks to MDC for the review copy.
