1/32 MiG-29 Wheels and painting masks

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Jan 14 2021



These resin wheels from Zactomodels are designed for the 1/32 MiG-29 and include painting masks and are designed to fit the Trumpeter MiG-29.  These are direct replacements for the kit wheels.  These are weighted wheels and the brake calipers need to be located towards the front of the wheel while keeping the flat spot on the bottom of the wheel with very subtle bulge on the side-walls, this means there is a left and a right wheel, so make sure you don't get the wrong wheel on the wrong side.

Hub details mastered by Alexander Rogal include detailed brakes as well as separate fittings if you want to add extra detail. Instructions are provided showing hydraulic line locations.

Pre-cut vinyl paint masks are included to simplify painting.

Resin casting is of a very high quality and all the detail is very well done with no air bubbles.  The one page of instructions covers all you need to know including adding brake lines to your wheels.  

Though designed to fit the Trumpeter kits these wheels can be easily adapted to fit the Revell kit.

These wheel area available from the Zactomodels website for $14.00 + $2.25 S&H U.S., Mexico, Canada customers (Id. add 6% sales tax)

These are beautifully done resin wheels and just what you need if you plan to build a big MiG-29.very

I would like to thank Chris at Zactomodels for providing me with this product sample.
