Armory of the Ukraine produces a wide variety of kits and detail sets, with this release providing a nice update to the 1/32 HK Models B-17E/F Flying Fortress kits or any B-17B/C/D/E/F projects coming in the future.
This set contains the two main wheels and one tailwheel with beautifully cast wheel hub details and smooth tred patterns on the mains along with photo-etched hub covers. The wheels are weighted and the set also includes a set of wheel masks to make the job of painting much easier.
The only downside to this set is that the centerpoints are defined in the wheel hubs, but you're on your own to drill out the wheels for the axles.
You can purchase Armory products from a number of online stockists as well as directly from their online store.
My sincere thanks to Armory for this review sample!
