Aires 1/48 F-15C Cockpit Set (late) Set No 4409

I'll kick of this review section. This was originally posted elsewhere but I've updated it for here.

This the Aires F-15C cockpit set. Aires have a reputation of being well detailed but hard to fit. This was the first Aires cockpit set I've used. So how did it go......

Can't comment on accuracy so I'll leave that t someone else

The detail is crisp and well defined. With only a little flash to clean up in a few spots. Another plus is the resin seem quite soft, kinda plastic like and not brittle like some other resin sets I've used.

So how does it fit you ask

Well after about 20mins work, most of that removing casting blocks and the insignificant detail from the kits sidewalls it went in without any problem

My verdict, simple to fit, relatively cheap (about $22 USD) and so much more detail than the kit parts.. If you are building an F-15C with the canopy open I consider it essential
