First Look

Res/Kit from Ukraine produces a nice array of resin detail sets for a variety of popular subjects and scales. This set is a resin wheel set for any of the AMK or Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-31 Foxhound variants kits. This set replaces the kit wheels and also provides a replacement nosegear splash shield. The set includes four main gear tires with beautiful sidewall details and sharper tread pattern, separately cast inner and outer wheel hubs, and a pair of nose wheels, also with separately cast inner and outer hubs. The inner hubs have recesses molded into the center of the hubs so you can drill out the hubs to accommodate the kit struts.

MiG-31 Foxhound Wheels Set

The separate hub and tire parts for the landing gear will make painting and weathering these parts very easy. The sharp details in those wheel hubs will stand out nicely as well once installed on your aircraft.

Regardless of which variant of the MiG-31 you're building, this set will enhace your model at a reasonable price.

You can order this set with free shipping at HobbyZone USA.

My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this review sample!
