First Look

Royale Resin produces a wide range of resin detail sets which specialize in resin weighted wheels for a wide variety subjects. In addition to their wheel options, Royale Resin also produces some interesting other kit enhancements. This is one is no exception.

F-4 Phantom II Weighted Wheels

This release is targeted for any of the Hasegawa releases of the land-based F-4 Phantom II (also released by Revell). This set provides resin-cast weighted wheels with nice detailing.

These weighted wheels are good for any of the land-based Phantoms from Hasegawa including the F-4C/D, F-4E, F-4EJ, F-4F, F-4G, RF-4C, and RF-4E kits. The Navy Phantoms used a narrower wheel with high-pressure tires that didn't bulge.

If there is a Phantom II project coming up in your future, then you'll want to get one of these to help your project along.

My sincere thanks to Royale Resin for this review sample!
