Company: Aires Hobby Models
A quick “thank you!” to Aires for providing us with this set; once again the excellence of your products is readily apparent!
This is a very simple swap out for the Hasegawa Jaguar wheels. As you see in the side by side pictures, the outside rim detail is much more refined than the almost 30 year old wheels in the kit. The brake assembly on the back side (which is not on the kit wheels) is just phenomenal for this scale.
The masks are olive green and semi-flexible. My past experience with these masks are that they work very well… when you use them correctly! (Mask the tire, not the wheel.) That may seem obvious, but I’m getting older, ya know.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but this upgrade is well beyond my ability to reproduce; particularly for the four main wheels and brakes. The masks add another helpful dimension for those of us who just can’t quite thin the paint correctly and preventing the rims from looking like someone took a two-inch brush to paint the tires.
These wheels are a worthy acquisition for your Hasegawa Jaguar kit.
