The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The detail is exceptionally crisp and well defined and the photo etch fret is loaded with many fine detail parts and combined with all the small resin parts will give your Corsair a very complicated and detailed look. 

This cockpit set will do wonders dressing up the detail on your Corsair with highly intricate detail. 

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.
