The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The side consoles on the cockpit tub are loaded with detail.

This cockpit set is very well thought out and seems to have every detail to make your 1/48 F-100C Super Sabre look like the real jet.

You can purchase this and other fine resin detail items directly from Aires or from the many retailers that carry their products.  

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