Barracuda Studios produces a growing line of resin details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their BarracudaCals decal line. This release is a beautifully detailed set of main wheels with diamond tread for the new Airfix Sea Fury kit.

Sea Fury Diamond Tread Main Wheels

This set provides a nice pair of main wheels along with separately cast wheel hub caps with your choice of uplocks or not. This set is designed to fit the Airfix kit, but the instructions indicate that it can be adapted to fit the Falcon, Hobbycraft, AMG, and Trumpeter 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!
