1/32 BarracudaCast Spitfire 5-Slot Mainwheels for Tamiya BR32005
from the manufacturer:
As fitted to Spitfires Mk. I through the early Mk. IX. The 5 slot wheels in the Tamiya kit are superb, but the soft rubber tyres (British spelling for a British aircraft!) have a mold parting line that is very difficult to get rid of, plus they have a natural tendency to attract every piece of dirt and lint in the room. They need to be cleaned frequently. Replacing them with resin wheels cures these problems, plus it allows you to paint the tyres, and they will not split or crumble years from now. Replaces the inaccurate and oversized wheels in the Hasegawa and PCM kits as well.
