Pavla produces a wide range of detail sets for a variety of modeling subjects, primarily in 1/72nd scale. This set is targeted for the Kinetic 1/48 Mirage 2000C release. This set replaces the kit cockpit with some nicely cast and detailed resin parts.
Out of the box, the Kinetic kit is a nice, but Pavla provides an eye-catching cockpit including a new tub for pilot, new instrument panel and consoles, side walls, control stick, nice ejection seat, and a replacement canopy. The canopy is a vacuformed part that is thin and clear so you can see all of that nice detail through the canopy if you pose your model canopy closed, but you can also carefully separate the canopy from the windscreen and pose the cockpit open. You'll definitely want to show off that new interior!
If you want to update your Kinetic kit, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
