By Michael Benolkin

Subject Canberra Wheel Well Set Scale 1/48
Kit Number 48033 Media Resin
Pros Nice enhancement for the Airfix kits Cons
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) $TBA

First Look

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 a nice update for Airfix's 1/48 Canberra kits.

Canberra Wheel Well Set

This set completely provides a nicely cast replacement set of main wheel wells, wheel cover doors, actuators, and hydraulic cylinders. The image above shows the nicely detailed parts that you'll want to install in all of your Airfix Canberras and perhaps your Classic Airframes kits as well.

If you want to enhance your Airfix Canberra kits, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
