Pavla C 72-113: Su7BM cockpit set




Scott Van Aken


For the Modelsvit 1/72 kit

This next nice cockpit set from Pavla is for the Modelsvit Su-7BM Fitter. The set includes a new cockpit floor that also incorporates the nose gear well. There are full side panels, a new bang seat, a new instrument panel with detail and a new aft cockpit bulkhead. A new anti-glare panel with gunsight is included, though the reflector will need to be made from acetate. The set also includes a vacuformed canopy that is a single piece and the small section that fits into the back of it. New control stick and rudder pedals are included as well as a superbly cast ejection seat. Pavla has started putting a section of foam in the back of the container to help keep pieces from rattling around and being broken, however, this did not stop the rudder pedal piece from breaking in half.

The set comes with full instructions and a painting guide. Unlike most, this one requires no modification to the kit parts to use, something I know many will appreciate.

It makes for a superb set and one that will definitely be a plus over the kit parts.
