Pavla U 72-156: B-36 Front Gun Turrets & Compartment




Scott Van Aken


For the Monogram 1/72 kit

Next in the latest line of Pavla upgrade pieces is a new set that completely caught me by surprise. This is an upper turret set for the huge Monogram 1/32 B-36. It includes a gun compartment, the two outer fuselage doors, gun mounts, two two-piece gun turrets, barrels, shell ejection chutes, what looks like a motor for the doors and the incoming shell bands. This will require a bit of modification in regards to removing the areas of the kit that hold the outer doors. The resin doors will fit to the outside of the fuselage as they simply slid down the side. The set comes with 12 step construction instructions to help you get everything in the right place. If you are going to build this beast, you might as well make it look interesting.
