Armory of the Ukraine has released a number of very nice detail sets, this one providing a resin alternative to the kit wheels found in the Monogram, Modelcollect, or AMT/Italeri 1/72 B-52 Stratofortress kits. The title correctly indicates that this is a universal set as these wheels are the same for the B-52D/G/H models.
This set provides the eight main gear wheels plus the two outrigger wheels, all nicely cast in gray resin with nice hub details as well as the tire manufacturer logos on the sidewalls. The brake-side of the main wheels have a hole ready for drilling out the axle diameter for your chosen kit. The tires also have slight bulging on the bottom to replicate the weight on each wheel.
This is another set that you'll see in our Project FrankenBUFF build.
