Pavla C72124: F3D-2/2Q Skyknight Cockpit Set




Scott Van Aken


For the Matchbox 1/72 kit

This next Pavla upgrade set is a full cockpit for the venerable, but still nice Matchbox 1/72 F3D Skyknight. The set consists of a new cockpit tub, two new seats with head rests, control column and rudder pedals for the pilot, two different instrument panels, a panel anti glare shield and two ieces that fit behind the cockpit seats. There are also some panels for the inside of the fuselage as the Matchbox interior is pretty bare. One will have to remove the kit instrument anti-glare panel. The reason for the two instrument panels is that one is for the standard night fighter and the other for the electronic warfare version. One needs to check references as the later version will normally have a dark gull grey interior instead of the black one used in the night fighter version.

The set comes with complete installation and painting instructions. It makes for a great option for those who have had the Matchbox kit and have been waiting for a resin set for it.
