Install both spoked wheels with spokes facing port side of aircraft as shown in photo above.
Brake drum side of both wheels to face the starboard side of aircraft.

There are 2 wheels in each set.  Clean up is very minimal and the wheels come attached to the casting blocks with very easy to manage connection points and removal is easily done with no loss of detail.  The detail level and casting quality is flawless. 

Above photo shows the front (spoked) and rear (brake drum) sides of the wheel.

These wheels will do wonders for dressing up the detail on your 1/48 Mosquito. 

You can buy these wheels directly from Ultracast.
