Quickbost has produced a replacement tail wheel for the Tamiya 1/48 A-1H kits. The resin replacements are a simple drop-in for the kit's plastic parts. The supplied items include two different style wheels and the strut assembly. There is no modification required to the kit parts to use these resin replacements. These items should also work with the Hasegawa A-1H kits with no problems.

A side by side evaluation (see photos) indicates a replacement of superior detail that will provide a more accurate rendition of the SPAD's tailwheel assembly. Check your references for the appropriate tail wheel to use. Be sure to wash the parts in soapy water to remove mold release agents and prime prior to using your favorite modeling paints.

Highly recommended.

Thanks to the IPMS Reviewer Corps and Quickboost for the opportunity to review this item.
