First Look

Are you having trouble seeing inside the cockpit of your finished 1/72 scale Airfix Spitfire PR or Mk.1? Then perhaps you should upgrade your kit with Pavla Models latest canopy upgrades for the aforementioned aircraft in matching scale.

Spitfire PR.IV and Mk.1 Canopy Upgrades

With this release, Pavla Models presents five new canopies, (x2) for the PR. IV and (x3) for the Mk.1 Airfix Spitfire kits of the same name. The molding is crisp and clearly visible; modelers should not have difficulty painting the frames to match the color of the fuselage.

So grab a sharp hobby knife, some cyanoacrylic glue and this canopy pack to give your Spitfire "squadron on the shelf" a better view.

My sincere thanks to Pavla Models for this review sample.
