Aires Resin has produced a set of replacement flying control parts for the Airfix 1/72 scale Spitfire Mk 22. The resin horizontal stabilizers are a superbly detailed drop-in for the kit’s plastic parts. The supplied items include a firm greenish-grey resin casting block with the horizontal stabilizers attached. A side by side evaluation (see photos) indicates identical replacements that will provide poseable control surfaces for this nice little kit from Airfix. As always, check your reference photos.
You will not need to do surgery to the kit to use these beautifully cast pieces in your build. The resin fixed wing parts can be attached the same as the kit parts. The resin moveable parts can then be posed as desired. Attach them to the plastic with some super glue, and don’t forget to pose the control stick in the cockpit in the appropriate position!
Very highly recommended.
