Pavla C 72072: Mirage F.1C cockpit set


Pavla C 72072 Mirage F.1C Cockpit Set




Scott Van Aken


Resin for the Hasegawa kit . Also boxed by Revell AG

Pavla once again comes to the rescue of those of us who have older kits in desperate need of an upgrade. In this case, it is a cockpit set for the Hasegawa 1/72 Mirage F.1C. This is one of Hasegawa's raised detail kits and has a cockpit that is about as basic as you can get.

Fortunately, this set from Pavla fixes that. You get a full tub with side consoles that also includes a new nose gear well. A set of interior side walls is provided as is a new instrument panel with anti-glare coaming. A pair of rudder pedals and a control stick is part of the parcel. This ensemble is finished up with a proper bang seat.

Like all of Pavla's resin parts, the molding is good with seat harness molded in place. I'm sure that many of you are equally as pleased as I to see this. While designed for the Hasegawa kit, perhaps it will also fit into the ESCI version that some of you might own.
