Aires has added the wheels and masks for the AV-8B Harrier to their line of resin aircraft accessories. This latest addition is molded in a grey resin; it’s smooth, seamless and bubble free.

For comparison I pulled out a Tamiya and an Airfix Harrier from my stash. There really is no comparison. The Aires parts are solid and have a crisper detail. The paint masks are also a very welcome addition to assist in painting. Aires doesn’t recommend any particular kit, which would have helped out because the front wheel they provide won’t work with the 2 kits I compared it with. The Tamiya and Airfix kits had the front wheel molded onto the strut. The two center wheels worked well.

I very highly recommend this product if you want a nice set of tires for your Harrier model. I’d like to thank Aires Hobby Models and IPMS USA for the chance to do this review.
