Pavla C48024: Mirage 2000C cockpit set




Scott Van Aken


For the Heller 1/48 kit

Next in the latest line of Pavla's upgrade cockpit sets is this very nice one for the Heller Mirage 2000. The set includes a new cockpit tub with all that detail behind the seat and on the side panels along with a new bang seat. A new combination instrument panel/anti-glare panel/rudder pedals piece is in the mix along with new fuselage side panels. The set includes all the little console handles as well as a replacement control stick. Unfortunately, the heavy resin parts loose in the blister pack snapped my control stick in half. It is fixable, but I would rather it had not happened in the first place.

Detailing on the resin parts is superb and Pavla provides a full installation and painting guide. You will need to do a bit of carving to properly install this set, but those at the level of using these sets will be used to that by now.

Overall, it is a very well done set for an older kit and is quite welcome.
