For anyone building a 1/32 Eurofighter Typhoon, Aires’ latest release is a must-have. Anyone who has worked with Aires resin parts knows they are at the top of the industry for resin aftermarket parts. I recently had the opportunity with IPMS to review their resin cockpit set for the EF2000A, and the set was such a vast improvement that I jumped at the chance to see their new wheel bay set. Now, I should note, the set is recommended for the Revell EF2000 kit; however, I am comparing it to the Trumpeter kit. Now, Trumpeter kits are usually known for high detail and quality, but the Aires resin parts are far superior. The set comes in standard grey/beige resin and includes the nose and main gear bays and new door actuators. The bays are molded as one-piece, drop-in replacements for the multi-piece kit bays. The detail is amazing and, in a comparison to photos of the real thing, it seems Aires got every detail captured in resin. Another improvement is the integration of the nose bay with the lower air intake trunking. The parts fit in well with the kit parts for the rest of the intake. Overall, I have to give Aires a round of applause for another well done detail set. I can’t wait to drop these bays into my EF2000. My thanks to Aires for providing the review sample and to IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review it.
