First Look

ResKit from Ukraine produces a nice array of resin detail sets for a variety of popular subjects and scales. This set is a resin wheel set for Trumpeter's 1/35 Mi-8/Mi-17 Hip kit. Molded in gray resin, this set provides the nosewheel and main tires with separate wheel hub inserts, front and back.

Mi-8/Mi-17 Hip Wheels Set

The separate wheel and tire parts for the main gear will make painting and weathering these parts very easy. The sharp details in those wheel hubs will stand out nicely as well once installed on your aircraft.

The surface details on the tires as well as the wheel hubs will provide some distinctive details on your next Hip project with proper dry-brushing and weathering.

You can order this set with free shipping on HobbyZone USA's eBay store.

My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this review sample!
