Hussar is one of the brand names produced by AirConnection in Canada. Besides importing a wide range of books, decals, and detail sets from around the world, they produce a growing line of armor accessories in 1/35 scale. Here is another set of very nicely cast resin wheels and tires for the Bronco 1/35 GAZ-69 kit.
Molded in light gray resin, this set provides a nice set of wheels with a nice tread pattern on the tires including a matching wheel and tire for the spare which isn't done as nicely on the Bronco kit. The molding is very sharp and is produced from high-tech three-dimensional CAD designs and the master wheels printed in 3D for casting. Very nice work indeed! With that crisp detail, these wheels are just begging for some dry-brushing and weathering!
