Review by Steve Bamford on July 23 2009


This latest release from Aires features a complete resin wheel bay set for the F-16C Falcon from Tamiya.

This detail set includes;

  • Main wheels bays

  • Nose gear wheel bay

  • 3 diameters of copper wire for added detailing.

The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The level of detail is extremely good.  The instructions are easy top follow and mainly focus on where you add the copper wire that is included inn this set.

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.    

These wheel bays are a vast improvement over the kit parts and well worth getting if you want to save yourself some work and have excellent looking detail in your wheel bays. 


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