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

You can purchase these and other fine resin detail items directly from Aires or from the many retailers that carry their products.  A list of some of those retailers can be found here.    

I've always had a passion for the P-51D Mustang and I'm sure I'm not alone.  The big 1/32 Mustang from Trumpeter begs for this cockpit set to give it the detail in the cockpit it deserves.

I would like to thank Aires for providing me with this review sample.
