Recently I was given the opportunity by IPMS USA to review Aires Focke Wulf Fw 190F-8 Gun Cover for the 1/32 Revell Focke Wulf Fw 190F-8 kit. One of the first things to notice with this product is the excellent presentation of the packaging with the sealed flap on the back of package to allow for easy access to parts.

Upon removal of the resin gun cover you will notice the great detail that we have come to expect from Aires QB products. The molding on the gun cover is excellent and it comes off of the resin block with little effort along with the help of a razor saw.

Even though there is a separate gun cover in the kit, this cover is an addition to this kit, when looking at the side by side comparison you will notice that the Aires offering has a lot more underside detail and more defined lines and rivet detail on the top surface. If you are going to take the extra time to detail and open up the gun bay for display you will want this cover.

This is a nice looking cover with great detail and thinner more realistic edges than the kit offering, you will not be disappointed. I would like to thank Aires for a great product and IPMS USA for the opportunity to review this item.
