Spitfire Mk.IX Canopy Revision

Pavla 1/72 Spitfire Mk.IX Canopy Revision First Look

By Sundiata Cowels

Date of Review October 2013 Manufacturer Pavla Models
Subject Spitfire Mk.IX Canopy Revision Scale 1/72
Kit Number V72074 Media Clear Vacuform
Pros Properly formed canopy for Airfix Mk. IX kit Cons None
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) TBA

First Look

Pavla models has just released another Airfix Spitfire kit canopy upgrade, this time for the Mk.IX series. As with their previous releases, the canopy is molded in clear vacuform plastic, with crisp panel lines which should make it easy to paint in the canopy frame. No instructions or painting guide are included with this polybag offering but installation should be as simple as replacing the provided Airfix Mk.IX canopy with this upgrade.
