BarracudaCast | BR24412: F6F Hellcat Diamond Tread Wheels
Reviewed by Andrew Birnie
Despite advances in injection mould technology, and the Airfix is cutting edge in some ways, it cannot reproduce the finesse detail which resin can, and these wonderful wheels from Barracuda are very much a case in point.
Cast in their familiar cream resin, consisting of four parts, flawlessly cast, with a deep sharp diamond tread, unlike the kit representation, which is a real weak point, these wheels will do justice to the rest of the model.
Rounding off the package is a small instruction sheet, giving advice on removing the casting blocks, and assembling, as well as painting the parts to get the very best out of them.
This set is also suitable for a 1/24 Corsair, if dreams do come true.
