IPMS/USA says "thanks kindly" to Brengun for supporting the IPMS USA reviewer corps with yet one more of their growing number of releases, with useful additions for those who build. And thanks to IPMS leadership for sending it to me to be reviewed.

This set has four parts... two nose gear and two main gear wheels and tires. Cast in medium gray resin, they provide a professional final touch for those of us who frequent the Lilliputian scale of 1/144. There are no instructions, nor are any needed if you are using them.

Clean the resin with your own mold release agent remover, paint with flat black primer, then use a touch of flat white on a 00000 brush or a toothpick... followed by a gloss on the wheel, so a bit of weathering dark gray or black pin wash can be used to bring out the detail.

What amazes me most about this set are the wheel details, including brake pad assemblies for the rear of the wheels, and cooling holes for the brake system on the forward wheel face. Past my ability to manufacture, it's an amazing bit of art and wizardry.

Brengun appears to have the 1/144 scale aftermarket details firmly in hand, and we appreciate Brenguns' owners for supporting us... thanks to them and Phil and John for sending Bregun stuff my way...!
