1/32 Bf 109 Wheels

I ordered a set of these wheels and I just wanted to let you know that these are the most accurate 109 wheels ever made - period. So no matter the donor kit, treat yourself and order these!

"All the aircraft have been meticulously researched and full markings are provided for each aircraft. Excellent production quality and amazing attention to detail."

Internet Modeler

"If, as a historian, you like well researched and well-read books about unit histories, then you must buy this book. If, as a modeler, you like a good amount of color profiles, coupled with an excellent unit history, then you must buy this book."

Osprey Publishing - The Modelling News

"This part drops straight into the kit so the ease of use, the quality of the piece itself and not to mention the cheap price at US$7.95 (on a kit worth a lot more than most) - make this a really easy purchase for modellers with any kite that uses a Mercedes D.III engine."

Note from a Satisfied Customer

Thank you very much for sending me the replacement part for my P-51D sidewall. I also received my order for the Mustang resin wheels in both diamond and hexagonal tread pattern. They are STUNNING! Perfect fit with the kit's hubs and the aftermarket metal struts. I had bought resin wheels from the others but yours far better! I've picked up everything your offer for the mustang but if there's more please let me know.

The Hell Hawks book is superb! Tremendous reference and great companion to the Dorr/Jones work.

Resin and Decal Praise

I can't say enough about your resin & decals! I have your side walls and decals/placards for the Tamiya P-51. My build started before I knew about the aftermarket and I had already completed the IP and could not reach it. That being the case, I decided to save the sidewalls for my second build. I did, however, use many of the decals on Tamiya's sidewalls and I loved the tiny two-piece decals. No, I really did! Based on that experience, I bought everything you make for Tamys Spitfire IX and am really looking forward to that build. I digress. [A]s fantastic as Tamiya's 1/32 kits are, your stuff really wakes them up with fantastic detail and realism. After the Spit comes their Zero. This is really fun.

Keep up the great work.

Hell Hawks Book

I received my copy of your book "Thunderbolts of the Hell Hawks" and just wanted to say what a beautiful publication it is! The photo's are excellent and the colour profiles are superb. I pride my book collection that I have and this one is up there with the best of them, very well done to you, Don and John, great work. I haven't got Don or John's email, so could you please pass on my comments to them if it is no trouble?

Jeff

Just to let you know that the package with the decals and P-51 details arrived safely. As ever everything is a real delight and the quality is fantastic please keep it coming! Ill look forward to seeing you at Telford in November.

Paul

Just wanted you to know that I recently placed and received an order from you, and you did a fantastic job! The quality of the resin parts for the Tamiya Mustang are superb, and the decals look amazing!! I was extremely shocked at the low cost of the shipping as well, very reasonable, and I got my package in two days here in Michigan! I just can't say enough nice things about my experience, and I will make sure everyone I talk to in modelling knows what a great job you do!

Nathan

I received your package today. Your slogan "Made with Pride in the U.S.A. is 100% justified. In looking at the parts I can only say that this is the best in resin I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of stuff. Its so clean and crisp great. Congratulation for this wonderful work of art.

Best regards from Switzerland,

Helmut
