This latest release from Aires features resin main gear bays for the Hawker Hurricane from Hasegawa.  This is a straight forward set that includes the 2 main gear bays and smaller resin parts to add further detail.

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The instructions are well laid out and easy to follow.  The level of detail is crisp and quite nicely done.  

This set would be a very nice improvement over the Hasegawa kit wheel wells.

You can purchase this 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.
