Complete wheels set for P-51 Mustang
Signifer's 1:32 scale complete wheels set for P-51 Mustang comes in a small zip lock bag and is composed of the following items:

  • Two resin tires;
  • Two resin wheel hubs;
  • A piece of lead wire;
  • One resin tail wheel;
  • One small instruction sheet.

The quality of the resin pieces is very good. I found only tiny air bubbles on my sample which won't be visible after the application of some weathering. Casting is very nice as well but the parts will have to be cleaned to be free of flash, especially the two separate wheel hubs. Detail is excellent with a nice rendering of the diamond shape pattern. Even the Good Year and tire size can be read on both sides of each tire.

Conclusion
Resin wheels are sometimes necessary, for example when the pattern of the tires don't match the references or when one doesn't like the vinyl or rubber ones provided in some kits. If this is the case for your next 1:32 scale P-51 Mustang project, Signifer's wheels set will offer you a good alternative to the original kit parts.
