Latest releases from Aires covering Aircraft in 1/32. The detail in these castings look amazing from the quilting in the seat cushions to the pipework in the Flogger cockpit. The Spitfire wheels despite being for any kit must surely be aimed at the Tamiya kit. The inclusion of the paint masks is a excellent idea. If any of you have these two kits on your Christmas list, then these accessories will be perfect stocking fillers.
