Pavla  C 72068 SM.82 cockpit set

Resin for the Italeri/Supermodel kit

Yesterday, I reviewed the bomb aimer's position and side gunner mounts. This set is much more extensive and fills out the cockpit. It is a total replacement for the rather basic kit parts in that it offeres full positions for the pilot, co-pilot and the navigator/radio operator. This includes complete bulkhead detailing as well as finely detailed crew seats, control sticks, instrument panels, rudder pedals and the interior framework, amongst many other things. The set also has a nice clear replacement cockpit canopy piece. The well done instruction sheets show the material that has to be removed from the inside of the forward fuselage, but aside from that, this is pretty much a drop in replacement set.

For one thing, this and the previous set will totally change the look of the interior of this kit.
