FirstLook

 

Aires' new 1/72 scale Mosquito wheels are cast in dark grey resin with crisp detail that is superior to that of the Tamiya kit parts which they are designed to replace.

The tyres are cast with a slight flat spot which is not overdone, another area where it's superior to the Tamiya part. It is, however marketed as an Aires set and having the masks and instructions is an added bonus. Aires' casting really is excellent and I hope they give us more of it!

Highly Recommended.
 

Thanks to Aires for the review sample
