Lancaster Resin Main Wheels Smooth Tread Set

These wheels provide greater detail relief than the kit parts as well as a seamless surface. These wheels are beautifully cast in tan resin and have no casting flaws or bubbles. The castings are nicely done with sharp detailing and not overdone weighted tires. If you want a nice enhancement for your Airfix or Revell Lancaster, this is the set you're looking for. These will also work with other 1/72 Lancs as well.

My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
