The Set:
Def.Model has released this set of resin replacement wheels for the two Meng Models 4 x4 Pick Up kits (#VS001, VS002) and consist of the four vehicle wheels and one spare wheel.

The quality of the resin casting is excellent with just some very fine flash in the rim spoke holes and the large casting plug on each wheel. These wheels like many others are NOT direct resin reproductions of the Meng Models kit wheels but have a completely different pattern allow spoke wheel rim with well defined spoke and hub details and excellent civilian style low profile tyre tread with slight bulging at the ground contact point. The wheels include the side wall embossing with “DUNLOP” spelt correctly and “Grandtrek ATZ “.

Resin parts

Fitting the wheels to the Meng Models Pick-Up kits is straightforward with the same rear rim locating lip that simply replaces the kit wheels, all very easy.
