Pavla 1/72 Lightning F.6 Cockpit First Look

If you're looking to add a little more detail to the front office of the new Trumpeter 1/72 Lightning F.6 kit, here is an impressive bit of resin casting that will meet your needs. This intricate casting replaces the kit cockpit with a new drop-in resin tub with integral detailing on the side walls and side consoles, a new ejection seat with harness, and a new instrument cluster with panel and cover. A new control stick rounds out the set.
Take a look at that detailing! The parts have nice detail fidelity and need only to be painted and dry-brushed to bring all of that detail out. This is one of several enhancements that Pavla has released for the Trumpeter Lightnings and I imagine we'll see this set with different panel configurations to support the other marks in the series.
If you want to dress up your Trumpeter Lightning, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
