FirstLook

 

Aircraft on the ground are often seen with their flight controls offset.  Adding this feature adds to the realism of the model.  Vector allows you to do that with their new set designed for the Hasegawa P-40E/N. 

The set comes in a ziplock baggie with a paper identification card on the top.  There are no instructions but none are needed.  Molded in light grey resin the parts include ailerons, horizontal tail surfaces, elevators and rudder.  Everything is has beautiful fabric detail.  The panel lines are quite petite like on the kit. 

This set will allow you to reposition the flight controls as you see fit.  Don’t forget to offset the control stick for the elevators and ailerons.  The pedals can be neutral as most tail wheels, the P-40 included, are free castering.  This set will bring your model to life.

Thanks to Vector for the review copy
