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 major office update to the Airfix 1/72 Supermarine Spitfire PR.XIX kit.

Spitfire PR.XIX Cockpit Detail Set

This set essentially replaces the kit interior with a new cockpit floor w/front and rear bulkheads, new sidewalls with nice detailing, rear frame for the seat mount, new seat, and all new rudders, control yoke, hydraulic pump handle. and a nice vacuformed transparency.

This is a very nice update/replacement set for the Airfix kit and given the various other enhancements Pavla has released for this kit including new propeller, radiators, and external details, you'll definitely hae a nice looking PR.XIX for your scale flightline.

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
