Plusmodel Aero Line Series 1:72 B-26 Marauder Late (groved) wheels

#AL7042

 

Introduction

This small review presents us with an easy enhancement to 1:72 scale B-26 -B / -C or even later models.

Also, a new format in a form of a transparent bag.

What’s on the box bag

 

In the clear bag, the content is visible for inspection, 4 light grey resin parts and a small vinyl type white paint mask

 No reference picture is provided, but with the internet available, it is possible to consult some reference for painting. According to my references, the wheels hubs should be painted metallic.

This set allow to represent a late B-26 -B / -C or even later models.

The main wheels are composed by a complete unit containing the tyre and hub. The detail is delicate, and it will show under a layer of colour. Also worth of note is the tyre groove pattern.

The front wheel, despite the small size, presents a magnific detail, especially the tire pattern, and this is particularly visible as the B-26 as very distinct and visible front gear.

The rear hub is cast as separate piece and the wheel spokes have a fantastic detail.

The last part is a small vinyl pre-cut paint mask.

Should you prefer to paint the wheel first and then the tyre, you have two sets available.

Also, if you prefer to paint the tyre first and then the centre rim, also two sets are at your disposition.

 Conclusion

This set will provide an accessible and efficient way to detail and accurately represent a late B-26 -B / -C or even later models
