Plusmodel Aero Line Series 1:72 C-119 Boxcar Wheels - Early

 

#AL7039

 

 

Introduction

 

 

 

This small review presents us with an easy enhancement to 1:72 scale C-119

Also, this set has a new layout, presented in a clear bag.

What’s on the box bag

 

 

 

In the clear bag, the content is visible for inspection, 10 light grey resin parts and a small vinyl type white paint mask.

Set detail is very crisp and it will upgrade the detail, comparing with the Kit’s plastic wheels.

Italeri C-119 Main wheels

Italeri C-110 front wheels

 

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

The rear rub is moulded as separate part.

The front wheels, despite the small size, presents a magnific detail, especially the groove pattern on the tyre.

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 enhance the wheels of Italeri’s 1-72 C-119 early version.
