Introduction
Armor35 is know for their WWII-era soviet civilian, government and (also German) military figures, and associated railroad models in 1/35. GAZ-AA wheel with flat tyre Version I, item 35304, is a 1/35 resin wheel with a flat tire for modelers to modify their GAZ-AA truck models.

GAZ-AA trucks in 1/35 that I know of are available from Hobby Boss, MiniArt, Toko, Zvezda. I do not know if Armor35 made this flat tire for a particular model.

GAZ-AA wheel with flat tyre Version I
One gray resin tire is included per package. Casting is high-quality with excellent crisp detail. I see no flash, air pocks nor other flaws.

Because the package shows Version I, I suspect a second style of wheel is forthcoming.

Detail
Armor35 mastered this wheel front and back. The rear has bolt holes. The front of the hub has bolt heads.

The tire has excellent tread detail. It also has beautiful raised lettering.

Conclusion
GAZ-AA wheel with flat tyre Version I is a beautifully cast highly detailed model wheel for the GAZ-AA. Modelers who want to make a vehicle in need of maintenance should appreciate this piece. Recommended.

We thank Armor35 for providing this part for review here - on ARMORAMA.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
