The Tamiya kit of this famous tank buster is top of the line but why not add a bit more detail. The Aires set supplies new stabilizers with separate control surfaces which are a direct replacement for the kit parts.

You get four pieces of perfectly cast resin. No instructions are included as these are direct replacements for the kit parts. Just remove the parts from the casting blocks and install. The parts display great detail and they look better than the kit parts.

Online photos show Shturmoviks with their control surfaces down so this will make that simple modification that much easier.

Thanks to Aires and IPMS/USA for the review kit.
