Sherman Stamped Road Wheels & Idlers
(Kit #353009)

1/35th Scale
Reviews by Terry Ashley

This set has twelve stamped solid spoke Sherman road wheels and two stamped solid idler wheels again cast in the usual light gray resin.

The wheels are cleanly cast and include the grease plug and relief valve as well as the twelve small retaining bolts around the outer rim with well defined spoke details for some of the best stamped solid spoke wheels you will find and of course have the same excellent detail on both sides of the wheels.

The detail on the idler wheel also includes the grease plug and relief valve with well defined hub details.

The wheels can be used on any Sherman kit by simply drilling out the axle hole to the required diameter for the target kit bogies and then slipping into place while the idlers should fit most kit idler axles but again simply make any adjustments required.

There is a slight mould seam each side of the casting block point that will need smoothing out and any blemish remaining can be positioned at ground level and out of sight so this isn't a problem.

While the wheels are labeled for the Sherman, they could of course be used on any M3 Lee/Grant or M7/M10/M12/M36 kit as required to add additional details.

Highly recommended.
