T-28 Trojan Canopy

Pavla 1/72 T-28 Trojan Canopy First Look

By Sundiata Cowels

Date of Review October 2013 Manufacturer Pavla Models
Subject T-28 Trojan Canopy Scale 1/72
Kit Number V72078 Media Clear Vacuform
Pros Corrected canopy for Heller T-28 Trojan Cons None
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) TBA

First Look

The folks at Pavla Models appear to have a bone to pick with model kit manufacturer Heller, particularly when it comes to canopies. This month Pavla has introduced a canopy upgrade for the 1/72 scale T-28 Trojan from the aforementioned French hobby kit manufacturer in crystal clear vacuformed styrene. Sealed in the usual poly-bag, the molding is well defined and should present no difficulties for even a basic modeler.
