Pavla 1/72 Mi-17 Hip Flight Deck First Look
|Date of Review||February 2009||Manufacturer||Pavla Models|

|Pros||Nice enhancement for the HobbyBoss kit||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||TBA|
Pavla has developed several interesting details and corrections for the HobbyBoss 1/72 Mi-8/Mi-17 kits. This release completely transforms the kit's flight deck.
Where the HobbyBoss kit provides a simple flight deck, Pavla transforms the spartan kit into a detailed masterpiece that can be viewed through all of those windows.
The set comes with a replacement cockpit floor with integrally molded rear bulkhead. The floor and bulkhead have really nice detailing molded on the surfaces that will really stand out after painting. The set also includes a new overhead console, main cabin door, flight crew seats, instrument panels, collectives, cyclics, and rudder pedals. The crew seats have seatbelt and harness details molded in ready for painting as well.
If you want to dress up your HobbyBoss kit, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
