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 Revell/Germany (Matchbox) 1/72 T-2 Buckeye kit.

T-2C/E Buckeye Cockpit Set

This set essentially replaces the kit interior with a new cockpit tub w/front and rear cockpits, new ejection seats with nice detailing, new instrument panel pods, replacement sticks. and a nice vacuformed transparency.

This is a very nice update/replacement set for the Revell 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 Buckeye for your scale flightline.

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
