Pete’s Hangar's latest accessory for 1/72 scale Vultee Vengeance kits is a replacement wheel well.

This set joins the excellent multimedia cockpit, plus the engine and cowl sets offered by the same company for the 1/72 scale Vengeance, reviewed earlier on HyperScale.

This simple set comprises just two parts in caramel coloured resin – one wheel well for each side. The parts are "handed". One is applicable to the Port side and one for Starboard. Both parts are perfectly formed in my sample.

The sides and the roof of the wheel well feature crisp, raised structural detail.

Casting blocks are connected by a fairly thin attachment strip along one side only. The wheel wells should be a drop fit in kits derived from the old Frog mouldings; but the top of the resin parts will need to be sanded back for the newer Special Hobby kit.

The Pete's Hangar Vengeance Wheel Well set will be a nice way to finish off any superdetailed Vengeance kit in 1/72 scale.


Thanks to Peter from Pete's Hangar/Aussie Decals for the review sample.
