Packaging

Hauler-Brengun from The Czech Republic produces some of the finest aftermarket resin parts and model kits in the industry. The wheels in this set were no exception.

Brengun’s packaging was very good, with the contents contained within a clear plastic bag and a hard cardboard backing. There were no instructions included in this set, but none were needed.

These resin wheels would fit any 1/144 scale BF-109K kit, and just needed holes drilled to mount on to the kit axel. Two complete sets of main wheels and tail wheels were included. They were nicely cast with petite, slightly soft, tire and wheel detail. The main tires included a flat spot, but no tread pattern (unless these tires didn’t have a tread pattern anyway). In this scale I could not see this as being an issue.

Perhaps the only item that could have been included was a masking set, but that was certainly not a deal breaker. A couple of seconds with a new Exacto blade and a circle template would produce the masks needed to paint the wheels. German aircraft wheels were generally painted black or dark grey, so there would not be much contrast against the tires anyway.

When I next build a 1/144 scale 109, I will definitely use these little gems.

Thank you to Hauler-Brengun and the IPMS for allowing me to review this set.
