The new Airfix A-4B is a great little kit for a great price but can always use a little extra 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. Because this is a simple replacement, no instructions are included. Just remove the parts from the casting blocks and install. The parts display great detail and they look a little better than the kit parts.

Not much else to say about this one but I did do an online search and it looks like most Skyhawks had the controls inline with the stabilizer. I did find a few with a slight angle to them so this kit will make that option much easier than modifying the kit parts.

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