Pavla 1/72 Su-15UM Cockpit First Look
|Date of Review||June 2009||Manufacturer||Pavla Models|
|Pros||Nice enhancement for the Trumpeter kit||Cons|
|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||TBA|
If you're looking to add a little more detail to the front office of the Trumpeter 1/72 Su-15UM kit, here is an impressive bit of resin casting that will meet your needs. This set starts with a replacement fuselage cap for the cockpit opening and this new replacement adds some nice details on its own, but is still designed to work with the kit styrene parts. Next are two new cockpit tubs, one for the student pilot up front and the instructor in the rear. These too have nicer details cast into the side consoles as well as the ejection seat rails on the rear bulkheads.
The ejection seats are quite detailed as well, complete with the unique shoulder harness array. The set is rounded out with new sidewalls and instrument panels, so you'll have an eye-catching set of front offices for your Flagon trainer.
If you want to dress up your Trumpeter Flagon, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
