"The Leichter Panzerspähwagen (German: roughly "Light Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle") were a series of light four-wheel drive armoured cars produced by Nazi Germany from 1935 to 1944." from Wikipedia.
Not having the Bronco 221 kit, makes it pretty difficult for me to decide if these wheels are necessary to complete or correct the kits wheels. I received these in a package from Staff Jim, along with some other items to review, and I'm willing to pass them on to any member that has the Bronco 221 kit that might like to use them to build an Early Version, as I can only assume that the kit comes with different or later wheels and tires.
So what do you get for your money?
The package contains five beautifully molded tires. The tread pattern is nicely defined with NO mold seam to clean up, or to distract from the finished piece. (It would be nice if all injection molded tires came molded like this, well hopefully in the future they will be!) The package also contains the wheel fronts, and these fit the tires excellently, and with sharp details. I would recommend careful removal from the sprue, and careful clean up of the molding pips inside the tires, and on the outer edges of the wheels to keep the excellent fit.
I want to thank Armorama, and Stevens International for the chance to review this item.
Highs: Excellent tread pattern, and sharp details.Lows: Can't think of any.Verdict: A nice little affordable update set to znazz up your 221 to earlier tires. Well worth the 5 or 6 bucks.

I'm rewriting this in a much more humoristic way, to help over inflate my ego, and place my self on a pedestal, because I don't have a life, and plastic models are the only thing I live for. I plead guilty as charged to excessive babble, light hearted humor, and continued encouragement to youngsters...
