Barracuda Studios | BR32358: 1/32 Scale Fw 190A-6 thru A-9, F, D Mainwheels - Ribbed
Reviewed by Kevin Futter
Barracuda Studios has just released three sets of resin replacement wheels for Fw 190s. Here we take a look at BR32358, which features the late-style hub with ribbed tread on the tyres. Quoting from the header card:
Contains accurate resin mainwheels with ribbed tires, solid wheel hubs and detailed tire logo, data. For all later Fw 190A/F, all Dora series kits.
Each tyre and hub is moulded as a single piece, with both wheels cast on a single pour block.
Details is exquisite, and the casting quality if flawless. If you look closely, you can even read the data on the sidewalls:
These are as good as resin wheels get in this scale, and not only superior to what you might find in any of the relevant target kits, but they also provide a good alternative to the smooth tyres you find in the Hasegawa kits.
These replacement resin wheels from Barracuda are excellent, and practically recommend themselves!
Thanks to Barracuda Studios for the review sample.
