You don't find many modelling accessories for under $2.00 in 2003.

True Details' P-47N Thunderbolt Wheel Set is simplicity itself. Two eight-spoke main wheels with nice rim and diamond tread pattern detail, are supplied on a small resin casting block. Both wheels are "bulged and flattened".

These wheels will be suitable for either the Academy or ProModeler 1/48 scale kits.

The wheels are certainly better detailed and finished than the equivalent items in either kit. In addition, the one-piece resin wheels eliminate the need to sand down the centre seam on the kit wheels so their is no risk of eliminating tread pattern in the process.

They're inexpensive too!
