The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  Once painted this will be a fantastic looking cockpit. 

The detail on this cockpit set is so rich and fine that it is hard to believe this is 1/72 scale.  Aires has done a wonderful job on this cockpit set and it will be a beautiful addition to your next 1/72 A-7D Corsair II. 

You can purchase this 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.
