Pavla C 72064: Typhoon twin seat cockpit set




Scott Van Aken


resin and vacuform. For the Revell 1/72 kit

This particular cockpit set is for the recent Revell 1/72 kit. The set contains a complete pair of cockpits for the twin seat Typhoon/Eurofighter. There are two full cockpit tubs, two seats with harnesses molded on, a pair of instrument panels, two consoles, rudder pedals, control sticks and a new aft bulkhead. The set also comes with a very nicely molded vacuformed canopy. This canopy is not only quite clear, but is also molded from somewhat thick plastic so that it is easier to mount. Somewhere between molding and my opening the package one of the control sticks disappeared. While I don't have the kit, I will suppose that one could use the kit offering in place of the missing stick. The set includes complete construction and painting information, including what needs to be modified to get things to fit.

Another superb set for those of us who like to build 1/72 and have been frustrated by a lack of aftermarket in our favorite scale.
