The AIRES 1/72 Mig-15 control surfaces aftermarket set gives you elevators and horizontal stabilizers for the Eduard 1/72 Mig-15 kit. The four piece set replaces the two single piece horizontal stabilizers and elevators. The difference is that with the AIRES parts you get separate elevators so you can position them. When I compared the kit parts to the aftermarket parts the resin parts were a bit finer in size and shape and the detail was slightly more refined. The biggest gain of the AIRES set is the positional elevators.

Build wise the parts are plug and play. Eduard has a different connection point for each stabilizer so you can't confuse right from left. The only warning I can give is that with the resin parts the pegs can be cut off easily when removing the parts from the pour plugs as there is excess resin around the attachment points and the points are fragile. If they do break (as one of mine did) you can take the attachment points from the kit parts and just glue those to the stabilizer as they are the same size.

I definitely recommend this control surface set for anyone who likes the look of resin or wants to have positional control surfaces.

My sincere thanks to AIRES for the product and to IPMS USA for allowing me to review the accessories.
