This Aires accessory wheel bay set is made for the Academy SB2C-4 kit. As you can see from the photos, the kit’s molded-in wheel bay details are found on both the top and bottom halves of the wing. The resin replacement bays are single pieces with additional detail inside each bay. The instructions will have you remove the molded-in details on each upper and lower wing and replace them with a one-piece resin bay. This will prevent any seams from showing inside the wheel well.

You also get replacement pieces for the gun tubes that go through the outboard end of the wheel wells as well as a retraction rod for the landing gear. All of the parts are nicely cast in Aires’ customary medium grey resin; they are well molded and bubble free. This set is certainly recommended.

Thanks go to Aires for providing the parts and to IPMS/USA for allowing me to review them.
