Alpha Jet Canopy

Pavla 1/72 Alpha Jet Canopy First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review January 2010 Manufacturer Pavla Models
Subject Alpha Jet Canopy Scale 1/72
Kit Number 72071 Media Resin
Pros Nice enhancement for the Airfix/Heller kits Cons  
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) TBA

 

 

First Look

Pavla has developed several interesting details and corrections for the venerable Airfix and Heller boxings of their 1/72 Alpha Jet. This release replaces the thick kit canopy with a clear and thin vacuformed canopy that will drop into place with a little care.

Alpha Jet Canopy

The canopy is formed as one part, but if you want to pose one or both canopies open, you can carefully cut the canopy away from the windscreen and intermediate frame. The frame detail is clear and pronounced which will make masking easier as well.

If you want to dress up your old Airfix and Heller kits, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
