First Look

Barracuda Studios produces a growing line of resin details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their BarracudaCals decal line. This release is a simple update for the Trumpeter 1/32 P-40B/C Warhawk kit. This set replaces the kit's styrene wheel hubs and vinyl tires.

P-40B/C Main Wheels w/Smooth Tires

This set provides a beautifully cast replacement wheel set with petite logos and dats sharply rendered. This set will also work with the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E for those aircraft with smooth tires as well as your favorite P-36 Hawk kits..

For a look at this set and other options from Barracuda Studios, stop by their website at

My sincere thanks to Barracuda Studios for this review sample!
