Pavla 1/72 Mirage F.1CT Cockpit Set
|Date of Review||November 2010|
|Subject||Mirage F.1CT Cockpit Set|
|Media||Resin, vac canopy|
|Pros||Nice enhancement for the Heller kit|
Pavla has developed several interesting details and corrections for the Heller 1/72 Mirage F.1CT kit. This release replaces the Spartan cockpit of the stock kit with some nicely cast and detailed resin parts.
Out of the box, the Heller kit is a nice kit, but Pavla provides an eye-catching cockpit including a new tub with nice side consoles and rear deck, nicely detailed ejection seat, detailed side walls, and a really nice instrument panel cluster. With some careful painting and detailing, you'll have a nice cockpit to display with that canopy open. To help with the canopy, the thicker kit part is replaced here with a vacuformed replacement.
If you want to update your Heller kit, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
