Product # 7324 for Hasegawa kit

Product Article by Steve Bamford on Jan 7 2015



This detail set from Aires features a set of dive flaps for the SBD Dauntless dive bomber from Hasegawa.

The dive brakes with all their holes are a focal point of any SBD Dauntless dive bomber model and this set gives you the ability to add thin flaps with all those wonderful holes.

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

There are 2 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Aires is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  You will be required to sometimes cut away detail on the kit parts to fit these parts.

These flaps are very well done. 

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

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