Recently I was given the opportunity by IPMS USA to review Aires Messerschmitt Bf 109G Correct Undercarriage Bay for the 1/48 Eduard 109G series of kits. 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 undercarriage parts you will notice the great detail that we have come to expect from Aires QB products. Once you have removed the undercarriage parts from the resin base you will need to do a little clean-up of the flash with your tool of choice on the openings of the bays (I used the tip of my X-Acto knife). After the flash has been removed they are ready to be glued into the wheel wells of the Eduard Bf 109G.

The corrected undercarriage bays are a great addition to this kit, when looking at the side by side comparison you will notice the ones supplied with the kit show the detail of where the openings are located but they do not have the openings that you can see thru like the Aires QB parts have.

I am well pleased with this addition to my Eduard Early Bf 109G, not only do they add great detail and the correct representation of the actual aircraft but the fit is perfect as if they were molded with the original plastic. I would like to thank Aires for a great product and IPMS USA for the opportunity to review this item.
