New from Eduard is a set of main wheels for the Revell 1/32 Bf 109G-6.  The kit supplied wheels are actually quite good but usually there's room for improvement and resin really lends itself well to these types of parts.  Eduard has elected to go with the more or less "prototypical" wheel for the G-6 (as well as many G-4's and the G-14), the stamped hub with ribs along the outer edge of the wheel and treaded tire.  Note that there were differences in the hub cap, the G-6 below uses the commonly seen hexagonal cover while Eduard hub portrays the open style.

Casting on the parts is razor sharp, the detail on the rear wheel hub in particular is really well done.  The tires are equally impressive with the "Continental" and "660x160" (the manufacturer and tire size) represented in raised detail.  The only drawback I see is the pour sprue extends roughly 1/3 of the circumference of the tire which will entail some clean up but certainly no big deal to anyone with any experience working with this media.  If you're new to this type of media please heed the precautions for working with resin parts, during sanding or any process that creates dust by all means use a respirator.  The dust created by polyurethane resin is nasty stuff and not good for the lungs.

So what do we think?

 

The wheels are exceptionally well done, detail is crisp and sharp.  Although these are marketed for the Revell Gustav I don't see any reason they can't be used to upgrade the Hasegawa or Trumpeter Gustavs as well with minimal modification.

 

Highly Recommended
