Super Etendard Canopy Revision

Pavla 1/72 Super Etendard Canopy Revision First Look

By Sundiata Cowels

Date of Review October 2013 Manufacturer Pavla Models
Subject Super Etendard Canopy Revision Scale 1/72
Kit Number V72075 Media Clear Vacuform
Pros Corrected canopy shape for Heller kit Cons None
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) TBA

First Look

Pavla has returned with yet another canopy upgrade, this time for the Exocet bearing Super Etendard by Heller in 1/72 scale. Lines are sharp and pronounced so the modeler should have no problem painting in the canopy frame; however I was unable to distinguish a clear line as to where I was supposed to cut to separate the actual "canopy and frame" from the rest of the surrounding plastic. Grab some reference photos and tread carefully.
