Lynx BERP Rotor Blades

Pavla 1/72 Lynx BERP Rotor Blades First Look

Subject Lynx BERP Rotor Blades Scale 1/72
Kit Number 72110 Media Resin
Pros Nice correction for the Hobbyboss kits Cons Nothing noted
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 another update for the HobbyBoss 1/72 Westland Lynx kits.

Lynx BERP Rotor Blades

Some of the Hobbyboss Lynx releases have conventional rotor blades while the others have rather distinctive tips to the blades though they're not quite shaped as BERP blades. BERP - British Experimental Rotor Programme - was the first of several iterations of blade designs that successfully increased the top speed and payload capabilities of the recipient aircraft. This new set from Pavla will provide you with a nice set of BERP-1 blades for the Hobbyboss Lynx kits. Molded in gray styrene resin, these are drop-in replacements for the kit blages

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
