Pavla produces a wide range of detail sets for a variety of modeling subjects, primarily in 1/72 scale. This release is targeted for the Airfix 1/72 BAC Strikemaster kit. This release replaces the Spartan cockpit of the stock kit with some nicely cast and detailed resin parts.
Out of the box, the Airfix kit is a nice kit, but Pavla provides an eye-catching cockpit including a new tub with rear deck, nicely detailed ejection seats, detailed side walls, and a really nice instrument panel cluster. With some careful painting and detailing, you'll have a nice cockpit to display with that canopy open. To help with the canopy, the thicker kit part is replaced here with a vacuformed replacement.
If you want to update your classic Airfix kit, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
