A clever bit of kit engineering by Hasegawa

So I'm building my 1/32 Hasegawa P-51D Mustang over the weekend. This is originally a 1960s kit, and it has a lot of shortcomings. I'm up to the landing gear. I snip off the wheels, and then I notice something spectacular...

Those wheel halves are incredible. Trust me.

The finished wheels.

Just watch the video below. I will admit, I had had a martini before I recorded this, which perhaps explains why I was just so exuberant, but the fact remains this is a beautiful little bit of 1960s scale model kit engineering that current manufacturers could learn from.
