GOTHA G.IV WEIGHTED WHEELS IN 1:32 SCALE

FROM - RON KOOTJE

FIRST LOOK REVIEW BY - Des Delatorre

These wheels are now available and will enhance the look of your Gotha model.

The wheels are cast in a dark grey resin with a very clean finish, the pronounced flat section of the tyre is quite evident even before the wheels are removed from the casting block. The bulge either side of the wheel rim is quite good and looks realistic. The valve access flap has very good simulated stitching, the centre hub is also well moulded, the convex shape of the wheel cover is very well defined.







The wheels "snap" off the casting block very easy with little pressure, the break is clean. The remainder of the excess material cleans off very easily with the bulk being removed with a scalpel and the remainer with a fine sanding stick, the resin is easy to work.





The finished wheels give a realistic weighted look, they sit nice and flat and all appear to have the same degree of bulge.

CONCLUSION

These wheels are very well made with careful attention to detail, they will enhance the appearance of any 1:32 scale Gotha model, they are relatively inexpensive but will add greatly to the finished model.

Highly Recommended
