Me 262 Complete Wheel Set

Signifer 1/32 Me 262 Complete Wheel Set First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review April 2009 Manufacturer Signifer
Subject Me 262 Complete Wheel Set Scale 1/32
Kit Number 32005 Media Resin
Pros Updates the Trumpeter kit Cons Nothing noted
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (Euro) 8.49€

First Look

The Trumpeter Me 262 kits are really nice models straight out of the box. One of the few items that many modelers want for this kit is an alternative to the rubber tires that are included in the box. Signifer to the rescue.

Me 262 Complete Wheel Set

This simple detail set replaces the kit wheel hubs and rubber tires with resin-cast tires that are weighted and cast with some very nice tread detail as well. Two different nosewheels are provided, one with a tread pattern, one without. A proper application of paint and weathering on these parts will really bring out the beautiful details here and enhance the overall look of your Me 262.

My sincere thanks to Signifer for this review sample.
