1/72 IL-2 Shturmovik control surfaces

Product # 7313 for Tamiya kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Nov 13 2014



This detail set from Aires features resin control surfaces for the IL-2 Shturmovik
from Tamiya. 

This detail set includes 2 resin horizontal stabs plus control surfaces. The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free. These parts feature beautifully done recessed panel lines and cloth covered control surfaces that is also beautifully done. Both parts are shaped to fit into each other.

Lowering or dropping the horizontal flying surfaces adds another element of realism to your model and these resin parts make this process very quick and easy. To modify the kit parts to look this nice would take many hours of work and probably wouldn't look as well done.

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.
