Canberra Wheel Well Set

Pavla 1/72 Canberra Wheel Well Set First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review December 2009 Manufacturer Pavla Models
Subject Canberra Wheel Well Set Scale 1/72
Kit Number 72113 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 another update to the recently released Airfix 1/72 English Electric Canberra kits.

Canberra Wheel Well Set

This set provides a complete replacement for the main and nosewheel wells for any of the English Electric Canberra variants produced by Airfix and also includes corrected gear doors and their actuating arms. The wells have more representative structural detailing as well as hydraulic plumbing in each well.

This is a very nice detail set for the Airfix kits and will definitely add some eye-catching details to the stock models.

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
