CMK7364 - BAe Harrier Gr Mk.7A Control Surfaces Set

CMK produced a set of replacement control surfaces for the Airfix kit. This set bring separate ailerons, flaps and the tail fin also with separate rudder with a total of 7 parts.

 

 

The parts come with nicely detailed and fine recessed panel lines and inspection panels.

 

 

Little clean-up will be required to prepare these parts for assembly.

 

 

There is very little flash, if any, and a simple score with a scriber will free them from their cast blocks.


 

CMQ32282 - IAR IAR-80A/IAR-81-Early Mainwheels

 

 

CMK have also produced a lovely set of main wheels for the Special Hobby 1/32 IAR-80. The wheels are for the early version of this aircraft. They have been cast as weighted wheels with just a nice amount of bulge to the tyres.

 

 

The detail on these wheels is excellent with clear and defined B. F. Goodrich labelling on the sidewalls. They are smooth tyre mainwheels with superbly detailed hubs.

 

 

Clean-up should be very simple, just requiring a quick pass over with a fine sanding stick to have them ready to add to your model.

 

 

Conclusion

 

In conclusion, some cleaning up, will see you with some excellent additions to your Harrier Gr.7 or the IAR-80 aircraft. These come well recommended.

Many thanks to CMK/CzechMasterResin for the review samples.
