Recently I was given the opportunity by IPMS USA to review Aires T-28 Trojan air brake assembly for the 1/32 Kitty Hawk T-28 Trojan 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 all the different parts that make up the air brake assembly you will notice the great detail that we have come to expect from Aires QB products. The molding and detail on the parts are excellent and they come off the resin block with little effort along with the help of an X-Acto blade or razor saw.

The air brake assembly comes in several highly detailed parts that will need assembly. The air brake itself is highly detailed and looks more realistic than the kit offering. Compared to the kit offering, the Aires assembly gives more elaborate detail that looks way more defined and like the actual T-28 Trojan air brake than the one that comes in the kit. If you want to build the Kitty Hawk kit, this is a must get the level of detail required when you're building 1/32 aircraft.

This is a great, and I believe necessary, addition to an already detail oriented kit. 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.
