Another outstanding addition to the Aires line of resin detail and upgrade sets. This set for all versions of the venerable Hasegawa 1:72ndscale J-35 Draken. It may be able to fit to other kits but that is for you to find out! It is exquisitely cast in a medium grey resin and features extremely minute details absent from the kit parts. Anyone who loves The Saab Draken will want to add this set to their model. .

Only place to watch out for is cleaning up the inside seams at the top and bottom of the aft fuselage as this will be visible after the new tailpipe is installed. Again test fit many times before committing to glue. I had to install a stop bar of sorts behind and inside the fuselage to keep the nozzle from falling inside.

Aficionados of the Saab Draken will want to add this set to their pride and joy; and don’t forget these other sets:

Pros: Exquisite detail some you won’t see until a wash and dry brushing is applied

Cons: Instructions not explicit on kit modifications required for fitting set to the model

Thanks to Aires Hobby model and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
