Aires 1/32 scale He 162 wheels will be available online from Squadron.com




Beautifully moulded in grey resin, Aires has captured the full detail of the Heinkel He 162 nose and main wheels. The detail on the rims and tires has been faithfully reproduced with some subtle bulging and flat area to represent the aircraft weight.

These resin parts are quite an improvement over the wheels supplied in the Revell 1/32 scale kit, and are designed as a direct replacement with no modification required to the kit parts.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Aires for the review sample
