Here is the latest release from Barracudacast, this time providing a set of seamless and detailed main gear wheels, outrigger wheels, and outrigger struts for both the HB and Bobcat kits. This set will work with the Yak-28P Firebar and any of the Yak-28 Brewer kits. With the Yak-28's bicycle-styled tandem main gear struts with outriggers, just like the B-47 Stratojet, you'll want to have these details looking sharp for your shelf and/or the contest table.
