Aires 1/72 scale Bf 109E Control Surfaces will be available online from Squadron.com




Beautifully moulded in light yellow resin, Aries has designed this set to replace the elevators and ailerons on most 1/72 scale Bf 109E kits.

The horizontal stabilisers and elevators are a direct replacement of the kit parts with no cutting required but the modeller will have to remove the ailerons by carefully cutting off the kit parts.

The detail on the resin parts is very subtle but nicely done.

Although there is some minor modification of the kit parts required an intermediate modeller should be able to install this set.


Thanks to Aires for the review sample
