This detail set from Aires features a complete resin and photo etch cockpit for the A-37B Dragonfly from Trumpeter.  

This detail set includes;

  • Resin cockpit tub and 2 ejection seats

  • Instrument panel in resin

  • Acetate panels for the instrument panel

  • Photo Etch panels for the instrument panel

  • Small resin bits to detail the cockpit including 4 control sticks

  • Photo etch detail parts

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  

You will be required to sometimes cut away detail on the kit parts to fit these parts.

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

This cockpit set includes all you need to upgrade your cockpit detail to a very high level. 

You can purchase this and other fine resin detail items directly from Aires or from the many retailers that carry their products.
