1:72 Space Shuttle Wheel Set
The tires and wheels of the Space Shuttle were designed to handle extreme conditions. Not only must they support the weight of the 240,000 lbs (109,000 kg) Orbiter but also handle speeds up to 250 MPH (400 KPH) after having spent weeks in the cold vacuum of space. Depending on the time period and specific tire models used, each tire was pressurized in the range of 300-400 psi!
This kit provides 2 nose gear and 4 main gear wheels with brakes. Details are more accurate and sharper than the original kit parts.
Parts are designed for use on both the Revell and Monogram kits with modification. Some drilling is required to adapt the parts to the specific kit. Recommended drill bit sizes:
- Revell: .094" (2.4mm)
- Monogram: .064" (1.6mm) , .141" (3.6mm)
