Review by Steve Bamford on May 22 2009


This latest release from Aires is a resin/photo etch ejection seat for the 1/48 Republic F-105D.  This ejection seat is very nicely detailed and includes a fret of photo etch with seatbelts and other items to add detail.  You also get some resin parts for such things as the headrest and ejection handles.

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The instructions are simple and easy to follow.

There is nothing that dresses up a cockpit better than a resin ejection seat and this seat will do the trick on your next F-105D. 


You can purchase these and other fine resin detail items directly from Aires or from the many retailers that carry their products.  A list of some of those retailers can be found here.    

I would like to thank Aires for providing me with this review sample.
