Does anyone make a set of the curved wheel well covers for a PCM/Tamiya Spitfire kit??

The Tamiya kits (not sure about the low-back) come with both styles (for link or spline gear), so you can probably bum a pair from someone. I'm curious why you need them- e-mail me if you wish.

Hi Bob!
When the "C" wing was introduced the camber of the wheel was changed, as was the rake of the gear. The camber change prevented the gear from going into the wing all of the way, hence the bulge gear cover. All Spitfires from the Vc had this cover, and only very few companies give it to you.
