Contact Résine has added wheels for Trumpeter's 1/24 scale Fw 190D-9 to their growing range of accessories.

The wheels are crisply detailed and perfectly cast, with almost no cleanup required before painting and installation. Each wheel is subtly bulged and flattened.

The resin wheels will also prove more durable than Trumpeter's rubber tyres and are, in my opinion, easier to work with and paint.

The only missed opportunity is the lack of a resin tail wheel to replace Trumpeter's featureless donut.

Contact Résine's Fw 190D-9 wheels will be a welcome addition to your big Trumpeter Dora kit, and a drop-fit enhancement too.


Thanks to Contact Resine for the sample
