Hi all,

Is Aires falling behind the new 3D printing technology? Why do you think Aires is not using the 3D printed interior in combination with resin?


I believe Aires photo-etched parts pale in comparison to Quinta-Studio 3D interiors.

What are your thoughts?

I’ve actually always loved Aires’ approach of a multi-layered photo etch instrument panel and acetate sheet for the dials. No other manufacturer does this anymore. I think it’s way better than color photo etch even though it requires some detail painting. I do hate their generic approach to resin cockpit tubs that never fit and require so much effort to fit. I’ve always thought some resin side panels would be nice for kits such as Tamiya’s f-14 and F-4, which are made for separate plastic parts anyway. So I do agree to an extent, time for Aires to update its business model somewhat.
