Pavla 1/48 Canberra PR.9 Cockpit Set First Look
|Date of Review||September 2009||Manufacturer||Pavla Models|

Pavla produces an interesting line of detail sets for a variety of subjects, each one designed to enhance a particular aspect of a given kit. In this set, Pavla offers a nice update for Airfix's 1/48 Canberra PR.9.
This set completely overhauls the spartan cockpit in the kit. The set starts with a new drop-in cockpit tub the features the pilots cockpit as well as the navigator's compartment in the nose. Pavla has another set available with just the pilot's cockpit should you want to build your PR.9 closed up, but if you do want to open up the navigator's compartment, a new entry hatch is provided so you can pose both cockpits open.
The image above shows the side walls and overhead hatch for the nose compartment, the two nicely cast ejection seats, replacement instrument panels, navigator's entry hatch, control yoke, throttles, other nice detailing to dress up the kit.
If you want to enhance your Airfix Canberra PR.9 kit, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
