Recently I was given the opportunity by IPMS USA to review Aires Messerschmitt Bf 109G Flaps for the 1/48 Eduard 109G series of kits. One of the first things to notice with this product is the excellent presentation and packaging of the product.

The contents of the package contains 1 right and 1 left flap for the Eduard Bf109G series of kits. The flaps are easy to remove from the resin base by simply scoring the flap with your hobby knife and sanding the area smooth with some fine sandpaper or a nail file.

There are some small differences between the resin flaps and the flaps that come in the Eduard Bf 109G kit. The rivet detail on the Aires flap is a lot less pronounced and finer in detail than the kit part, and the fit is tighter to the wing right out of the package while the flaps that come in the kit need a little bit of sanding to get a similar fit and feel that you would want for the final representation of your model.

I really like the look and fit of the Aires flaps and they would make a good reasonably priced addition if you are planning on building an Eduard 109G series model. I would like to thank Aires for a great product and IPMS USA for the opportunity to review this item.
