Eduard from the Czech Republic is easily the most prolific producer of aftermarket details. Period. Brassin is a play on words with Brass and Resin, and in many sets in this series, the resin details also include a set of photo-etched parts as well.
In this release, Eduard has produced a beautiful resin wheel set for the MiG-29 kits made by Academy (and also released by Eduard). This set has replacement wheels with separately cast hubs on one side the part. The separately cast nosewheel hubs provide four different patterns as used on the MiG-29 so you can select the ones used on the aircraft you're replicating. The rein pars also include brake details (complete with photo-etched brake lines) and even a replacement splash guard for the nosewheel strut.
You should be able to find this detail set at your local hobby retailer or one of the many online hobby shops.

My sincere thanks to Eduard for this review sample!
