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 the Hawker Hunter in 1/48 scale, just in time for the new Airfix kit. Molded in gray resin, this set provides the main tires with separate wheel hub and brake hub inserts, as well as the nosewheel. You'll need to open up the center hole of each wheel hub to fit your kit's landing gear strut axles.
The casting of these wheels is very sharp and provide nice details in the hubs and treads. This set will enhance your model at a reasonable price. Not only will these look great on your Airfix kit, they will also work with the Academy kit as well.
You can order this set with free shipping on HobbyZone USA's eBay store.
My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this review sample!
