1/48 Vickers Wellington Mk. Ic & Mk. III Wheel Bays

product # R001 for Trumpeter kit 

Review by Steve Bamford on Nov 23 2007



This new resin wheel bay set from Royale Resin is a drop-in set that will require no modification to the kit.  These parts are a direct replacement for the kit parts.  Use a razor saw to remove the resin parts from the casting block being very careful not to breathe in the toxic resin dust.  These parts offer more detail than the original kit parts and will really dress up the wheels wells on your big Wellington.

Resin casting is of a very high quality in cream coloured resin with no bubbles or flaws.  The details are fine and very well done.  There are 4 pages of instructions with colour photos  which walk you through the process.


I would like to thank Doug Smith at Royale Resin for providing me with this review sample.

E-mail Doug at to order this set.
