We just keep getting more and more great stuff from these guys. They are truly one of the best resin casters out there. Their attention to detail is magnificent and the prices are reasonable to boot. This time up is a look at the burner cans for the Hobby Boss Tornado's. They look more towards the ones on the GR/4s then the ones on the Fighter /Interceptor variant but I could be wrong.

There are 6 great cast parts. 3 of each make up the burner assemblies for the Tornadoes twin engines. The engraving is second to none and the fit of the resin parts is superb. Aires gives you a kind of instruction sheet with installation pics and a few notes. Most of you who buy these already know the deal so I won’t dwell on it. No photoetch is in the set, nor is it needed. Just read the simple instructions, then paint and pop them in.

Use references for painting as none is provided. The recessed details will pop out with a thin wash when you’re done as well. I dry fitted the parts to the kit and find they will require very little work. Check them out on the photos.

My thank-you goes to Aires and IPMS/USA for the review set.
