|Skill Level||Intermediate||MSRP (USD)||$TBA|
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 nice update for Airfix's 1/48 Canberra kits.
This is Martin Baker's ejection seat that was the navigator's seat employed on the RAF Canberra as well as a few export models. The casting of the seat comes complete with nice detailing of the headrest drogue chute stowage, seat pan survival kit, and seatback parachute as well as the navigator's seat and shoulder restraints.
If you want to enhance your Airfix Canberra kits, Pavla has the parts to get the job done!
My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
