Review:

Aires has released this multi-media cockpit back in 2003. It is designed to replace the Hasegawa cockpit in its entirety. The Hasegawa cockpit is not bad, the Aires kit gives it however a more realistic and busy look.

The set comprises 18 cream-colored resin pieces, a PE fret and a small piece of acetate. The offering by Aires is cleanly cast and well engineered. I could not find any imperfections or airbubles in the casting.

The sidewalls, which are often separate and hard to position in other sets, are cast in one piece together with the tub.

The armored seats are also nicely detailed, the seat belts are provided in PE. I prefer them molded in resin, but that is a personal choice.

For both instrument panels you have a PE part and a piece of the acetate sheet.

Aires has a similar set for the Longbow version in 1/48th scale (Aires Nr. 4137 - AH-64D Longbow Cockpit Set).

If you want to add additional detail to the already nice Hasegawa cockpit, then this detail set is a good choice.
