Me.262 Wheels (632100 for Revell)

1:32 Eduard Brassin

Hot on the heels of our review of the new Revell kit here, here is a nice set of wheels to add a little bit of extra detail to the model.  As usual with Eduard's resin sets, they arrive in the familiar Brassin clamshell box, with the resin parts safely cocooned on dark grey foam inserts, and the instructions sandwiched between the two halves, doubling as the header card.  There are nine resin parts on six casting blocks, plus a set of pre-cut masks on yellow kabuki tape, which supply you with a full set of masks for the wheel hub, allowing you to cut the demarcation perfectly with little effort.

The detail on the wheels is superb, with sidewall markings and maker's technical data, while the rolling surface is covered with hexagonal tread blocks that look oval to the casual observer.  The casting block attaches to the contact patch, which is slightly deformed to give the impression of weighting, with outriggers barely touching the tread pattern, primarily to ease the casting process.  Both the main wheels and the single nose wheel have separate hub details, which could be painted separately if you'd rather, or masked with the abovementioned tape if you don't.

 

Superb detail and highly recommended.
