Barracuda Studios | BR24435: 1/24 Bf 109E/F Main Wheels w Ribbed Tires
Reviewed by Kevin Futter
Barracuda Studios continues to expand its BarracudaCast range of resin upgrade and detail sets with a new set of replacement wheels for 1/24 scale Bf 109E/F kits. This will suit the Airfix and rare Bandai kits out of the box, but some conversion work will be required for any of the Trumpeter Bf 109G series of kits.
The moulded-in hubs are very nicely detailed, while their rear sides feature subtle bolt details, and the tyres themselves have fully-legible manufacture details moulded in. A subtle flat spot appears to be moulded into the tyre where it meets the pour stub.
As noted on the packaging, the tyres feature crisply rendered ribbed tread detail:
This set is so simple that instructions are not necessary, and therefore, none is included.
This set is a no-brainer for someone looking to build a Bf 109 E or F in 1/24 scale, especially if you're planning to use the venerable Airfix kit as the path of least resistance.
Thanks to Barracuda Studios for the review sample.
