Pavla 1/72 Sea Harrier FRS.1 Control Surfaces Detail Set First Look
|Date of Review||October 2013||Manufacturer||Pavla Models|

Pavla Models is offering a replacement set of resin control surfaces (vertical fin, rudder, aileron, under-wing hinge fairings and tailplanes) for the Airfix Sea Harrier FRS.1 in 1/72 scale. As is usual for Pavla, the resin parts are molded well and there is a nice separation from the actual pieces and the pour block, so cutting with a micro-saw or hobby knife should not damage any of the units.
Not having seen the Airfix kit first hand, and since Pavla Models did not include a sheet of instructions, I can only infer that these parts are designed to replace the original model kit parts without any modification to the Airfix base model. Otherwise, have some reference material handy.
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
