|Date of Review||October 2010||Manufacturer||BarracudaCast|

|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$7.95|
BarracudaCals now produces a companion line of resin details under the BarracudaCast brand to compliment their decal line. In this release, we have a pair of nicely cast main wheels with the five-slot patterned hubs. If you look closely, you can see some really nice detailing inside those slots.
These wheels provide some addition detailing and pattern options for the Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire kits, but these can also be used with the Hasegawa and Pacific Coast Models Spitfire kits as well.
The castings are nicely done with sharp detailing and not overdone weighted tires.
My sincere thanks to BarracudaCals Decals for this review sample!
