Resicast Steerable Axles
Every now & then a little something arrives to make your life easier - like steerable replacement axles for your models.

Resicast of Belgium are well-known & well-respected when it comes to resin upgrade sets & bespoke kits. All those years of casting experience translates into a range of useful & very finely-made products.

One idea that caught our eye was their selection of simple steerable axle sets.

Often just containing nothing more than a new axle with ball ends & connecting linkages, you can quickly whip off the plastic version supplied with your kit & make something a bit different with minimum fuss.

All too often a kit can look too model-like because the wheels are not steered or set at an angle. It’s funny how just a simple conversion like that instantly heightens the effect of realism on your creations.

Released in 1:35th scale, they can be grafted onto to the donor kit with ease, we ordered a few versions for the Tamiya M8/M20, Jeep & GMC truck.

Moulding is as you would expect – excellent. The axles are easy to detach from the runners & there is very little clean-up. Attaching them is simple too.

We used a set on our GMC build & it posed no problems whatsoever, instantly making our GMC look more operational.

It remains to be seen if you think the outlay is worth it. Some modellers might argue it is a bit of a cop-out to spend cash on such a small “extra”. True, you could do the conversion work yourself. But, if you are hard-pressed & looking for a simple fix – these sets definitely do the job & are worth the money. Also, if like us you are just plain lazy, preferring to get to the painting stage as quickly as possible, these sets will make that nice & easy. Bargain!
