Good review thanks!

In future could you please post comparison pics with the kit wheels when you review aftermarket wheels?

Helps us see if there is a significant advantage in buying resin wheels. For instance I love DEF Model wheels but I decided against ordering some of their sets recently when comparison with hi-res photos of the products on their website showed only marginal improvement in appearance. Trumpeter wheels in their latest kits especially look really great out of the box.

And yes I know about those who prefer resin over vinyl any day, or sagged wheels over normal wheels, that was not my point...

Cheers,

Christophe

yeah good point!

Though I reckon its not a given that the reviewer will also have the parts which are intended to be replaced by the resin items.
