16190  1:16 Sd.Kfz. 234 Puma Eight Wheel Set 3

Regrettably the Das Werk kit tires are the wrong pattern for the Puma which was issued with civilian tread pattern tires which did not stand up well to the demands of service which lead to tires being replaced and the mix of patterns that is so characteristic of the Puma in action. It is frequently difficult to identify exactly which tread patterns are used on certain vehicles due to poor photos, moving wheels or mud but we have selected three identifiable examples and offering these as an 8 wheel pack to allow you to recreate these examples in a more cost-conscious pack. If you prefer to create your own mix of wheel patterns we have a range of 7 different tread patterns to choose from sold in packs of 2 wheels

Set 3  provides the wheels to model vehicle ‘024’ of Pz.Aufkl.Abt. 2  photographed in Normandy. The wheels are printed as a single piece and you simply need to shorten the kit axel parts G25/26 by 2mm to fit the new wheels which are weighted. Note that if you are setting your wheels in a turned position the four pairs of wheels do not all turn to the same angle, and depending on the direction of travel the 2nd and 3rd pairs will remain straight. The well know photo of ‘181’ shows exactly this effect.
