Pavla C48022: Mirage F.1C Cockpit Set




Scott Van Aken


For the Italeri/ESCI kit

Now we get to the full set. As you can see, not a ton of parts involved and, as usual, Pavla's detailing is superb. One does have to thin down the side walls of the kit fuselage to get this to fit properly, but that should be pretty easy with a motor tool. On also has to remove the molded in anti-glare panel and the rear bulkhead.

The set has a full cockpit and nose wheel well piece along with a newinstrument panel and anti-glare panel. The seat is detailed with the belts molded in place. Small bits include a new control stick (broken off in my sample), canopy prop, throttle, and radar control handle.

Instructions are included and have a full painting guide for the cockpit, seat and nose well. This is designed for the old but still very nice Italeri/ESCI kit and will make a world of difference.
