by: Jean-Luc Formery [ TEDMAMERE ]

The set
CMK's 1:48 scale F6F Hellcat Eight Spoked Wheels and four channel design tyres set is made of four resin parts: two tyres and two wheel discs. The masters have been made using CAD technology and the result is very crisp. The moldings have been done in a more traditional way so there are still some molding blocks to eliminate before using the parts.

Once painted and assembled, the wheels are direct replacements for the original kit's parts, so the instructions provided are more than enough. It is to note that nore the Hasegawa, nore the Eduard, nore the new Hobby Boss kits have tyres with such a design in their respective boxes.

Conclusion
If you have a reference photo of the aircraft you are building which shows it fitted with four channel design tyres, well, here you have some!

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AeroScale.
