Aires Models from Czech Republic specializes on aftermarket details; for the most part releasing drop-in resin replacement parts.

This set is intended to replace the wheels of the 1/48 Hasegawa Macchi 205. The set includes tail wheel and tail wheel fork. The parts are molded in grey resin, free of bubbles or imperfections and with great surface detail, down to the manufacturer of the tires molded with enough raised detail that will take dry-brushing fantastically!

The attachment points of the wheels to the casting blocks are miniscule and removal and clean up should be an easy task.

In addition to the resin parts, they include painting masks which are super-handy to have and use. The masks are pre-cut so it is as simple as peeling, placing and you are ready to airbrush.

I do believe that the wheels of the Macchi 205 were the same of the Macchi 202. I would encourage you to do your own research but, in a pinch, this set could help you finish your Mc.202 as well.

Highly recommended.

I would like to thank Aires Models and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
