Eduard Brassin 1/72 Spitfire Wheels
By Jim Bates
You can't have a Spitfire without wheels and Eduard has you covered! Each Brassin set includes two main wheels, a tailwheel and masks.
Set 672 108 covers the 4 spoke wheels with smooth tires, set 672 107 features 5 spoke wheels with tread pattern and set 672 142 has three spoke wheels for the Spitfire XVI. The wheels are beautifully modeled in grey resin with a subtle weight bulge and excellent detail. (The tire manufacturer's name is tiny, but readable.) The tail wheel is identical in each set and cast in a darker resin. The masks are a nice touch, as always.
If you like resin wheels, these are a nice upgrade to Eduard's Spitfire family. The only thing left for the modeler is to decide which wheels were fitted to his or her particular subject. Thanks to Eduard for the review sample.
