Pavla 1/48 TSR.2 MB Mk.8AV Ejection Seats First Look
|Date of Review||July 2009||Manufacturer||Pavla Models|
|Subject||TSR.2 MB Mk.8AV Ejection Seats||Scale||1/48|
|Pros||Nice enhancement for the Airfix kit||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$5.65|
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 another nice update for Airfix's 1/48 TSR.2.
Here is a simple enhancement - drop-in replacements for the kit's ejection seats. These seats are nicely cast with all of the complex seat harness and survival kit detailing cast into a single part for each seat. If you opted for Pavla's nice cockpit detail set (look here), then you already have these seats in that set. On the other hand, if you were happy with the kit's cockpit, but want to draw the viewer's eye to the details on the real ejection seats, then this set is an economical upgrade to the stock Airfix kit.
If you want to dress up your Airfix TSR.2 kit, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
