The wheels are cleanly cast and have the grease plug and relief valve and well defined details on the centre hub for excellent idler wheels with just some minor resin film to be removed from the lightening holes before use.
The wheels can be used on any Sherman kit with just simply adjustments required to fit the kit idler axle and there is a slight scar after the removal of the casting block but a bit of light sanding will remove this providing you take care when removing the block so as not to remove too much resin.
While the wheels are labeled for the Sherman, they could of course be used on any M3 Lee/Grant or M7/M10/M12/M36 kits as required to add additional details.
