Junkers Ju-88A-1/5/c-2/4 & A-4 Wheels

1:48 CMK from Special Hobby

With the profusion of new Ju-88 kits coming out in 1:48, together with those already available CMK have issued two sets of wheels in their Quick & Easy range as drop-in replacements to kit parts to speed your build, whilst adding some additional detail.  Each set arrives in a card backed bag, with the instructions visible in green behind the parts, and everything held together by a single staple near the centre.

 

 

Junkers Ju-88A-1/5/c-2/4 Early (Q48273)

Containing the main wheels and mudguard-equipped tail wheel for early 88s, all of which have a subtle weighting to the bottom, without overdoing it.  The Continental logo and type details are embossed on the sidewalls, with a straight tread running perpendicular to the direction of travel.  Casting blocks are on the bottom for the main wheels, while the tail wheel has a series of tubes with flash between then to reduce both the effort and clean-up needed to remove them from their block.

Junkers Ju-88A-4 Late (Q48274)

Containing the main wheels and mudguard-equipped tail wheel for late 88A-4s, all of which have a subtle weighting to the bottom, without overdoing it.  The tyres have raised radial treads, which meet on the contact patch, running perpendicular to the direction of travel.  Casting blocks are on the bottom for the main wheels, while the tail wheel has a series of tubes with flash between then to reduce both the effort and clean-up needed to remove them from their block.  Yes, these two descriptions are very similar, but with good reason.
