Me 262 Main and Nose Wheels - Smooth Hub

In this release, we have a set of weighted wheels with some beautiful casting for your favorite 1/32 Me 262 kit. This is one of two sets released by BaracudaCast and both sets provide the nicely detailed main wheels and hubs as well as a choice of two tread patterns for the nose wheel tire. What is different about the two sets is the nose wheel hub - this one has the smooth rim on the nose wheel hub. Check your references to see what combination of nosewheel tire and hub were used on your next project.

My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
