The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The seatbelts are a complicated affair with separate buckles to add a deeper level of detail and realism.  

This is quite the set and it will definitely add some great detail to the cockpit of your next Emil. 

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.

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