These represent a fairly new product from Aires, long time producer of quality resin aftermarket aircraft accessories and they are absolutely GORGEOUS !!!

As image shows, all tires and hubs are cast flawlessly as separate pieces which makes making painting a breeze.  The tires have raised "Goodyear" and tire info in raised letters that take a light dry brushing extremely well.  Images show the difference between kit and resin parts. There is also included a length of copper wire to be used as a brake line.  I truly believe that these will sell very well when the work spreads as to the quality found here.  See the "Wheeliant" line on Aires website at http://www.aires.cz/en/. Many thanks to Aires for the review sample.

Please note that cost is an estimate.
