As with most Brengun wheel sets, this set arrives in a clear plastic "sleeve". Within are the two sprues with the tires and rim covers for those tires. A small paper serves as the instruction sheet. A thicker rectangle of black paper gives the plastic "sleeve" more rigidity, protecting the 4 resin parts.

The instructions are very useful, showing the angle of the landing gear struts to the "ground", giving the modeler an "assist" in getting the flat surface of the tires and the gear legs in the proper position.

The tires are cast as a single piece, avoiding any seam along the circumference of the tire where it to be molded in halves. It will be necessary to clean up portions of the tire tread where it is attached to the sprue. A quick scraping with an Xacto blade will effectively remove any flash.

Some care will be required when working on the rim covers. These two parts are extremely thin, and it will be necessary to clean some flash out a few of the "pie" shaped openings in the rim.

This wheel se will add great detail to your Corsair or Hellcat. The tread on the tires is extremely well molded and there is some excellent detail cast into the rims.

This product is highly recommended for its ease of use, fine detail on all surfaces of the tires, quality of the molding, and sturdy packaging. Thanks to Hauler-Brengun for providing this item to IPMS for review.
