FirstLook


Aires continues its prolific release schedule with a number of recent offerings in 1/32 scales.

Casting quality of all three sets reviewed here is perfect.

These are mostly quite self-explanatory, and images of all the resin and photo-etched parts follow:

2128 - Spitfire Mk. IX Wheels and Paint Masks

These are the four-hole style, subtly bulged and flattened. They will be suitable for either the Tamiya or Pacific Coast Models kits.
