Wheels for Stryker
Master Productions Set No. MP35048
Review by Terry Ashley

AFV ClubTrumpeter
Master Productions are the latest to release a set of resin replacement wheels designed for either the AFV Club M1126 Stryker ICV kit (#AF35126) or the Trumpeter M1126 Stryker ICV (kit #00375) and consists of 18 parts in light cream resin.

The quality of the casting is excellent without any blemishes and just the remnants of the casting blocks to be removed and the small remaining scar that can be positioned at ground contact to hide out of the way. There is some minor cast seams on the inside shoulder of some wheels which is very easy to remove but other than that the casting is excellent.

As with all previous resin Stryker wheel sets these wheels are again based on the excellent AFV Club kit vinyl wheels and hubs and it's hard to see anyone doing the tread and sidewall detail better. Included in the set are 8 rear "plugs" with the mountings for the Trumpeter kit when using the wheels on that kit.

The images below show the resin wheel detail the same as the AFV Club kit with the rear pin ready to take the AFV Club brake drum or the resin "plug" to fit to the Trumpeter kit without any further adjustments required on either kit.

Master Productions

This is another nice set of resin replacement wheels for either the AFV Club or Trumpeter Stryker kits with the same level of detail as the AFV Club kit wheels but will appeal to those who prefer resin wheels over the kit vinyl wheels. For mine these are the best of the available resin stryker wheels for while being based on the AFV Club kit wheels like all other sets they allow you to use them on either the AFV Club or Trumpeter Stryker kits without any hassles.

Highly recommended 8/10

See the Stryker Subjects page for other sets available for the Stryker.
