Eduard 1/72 Tamiya P-47D Wheels
By Matt Bittner
There are occasions where it's nice to display models - when on wheels/tires - showing some weight on the tires, like in close-to-real-life. This set accomplishes that.
The Eduard 1/72 P-47D Wheels set consists of seven pieces of resin and a set of masks, including masks for the tail wheel. The set comes with two different sets of outer hubs, one plain and one with "spokes". There is a little bit of surgery involved by cutting off the kit-supplied tail wheel/strut, drilling a hole in the Tamiya part where the tail wheel/strut was and gluing on the Eduard replacement, naturally after painting and decaling.
This is a fantastic set of replacement wheels/tires for the superlative Tamiya 1/72 P-47D. Pick up a set if you want to display your model "weighted".
My thanks to Eduard for supplying this review set.
