Mosquito Late Main Wheels

In this release, we have a nice set of weighted wheels with some beautiful casting for the Airfix 1/24 Mosquito FB.VI kit. This set has a similar tire tread as the stock kit but the blank wheel hubs are updated with these detailed alternatives. These wheels are drop-in replacements for the kit parts. For a look at these parts and other options from Barracuda Studios, stop by their website at

My sincere thanks to Barracuda Studios for this review sample!
