Pavla C 72073: SU-15TM cockpit set




Scott Van Aken


Resin for the Trumpeter kit . Also includes two vacuformed canopies

Some kit companies produce kits that we all want, but once we get them, we find that they somehow missed. This can be said about the Trumpeter Su-15TM kit. Pavla has realized a need for some proper bits for this kit and so has started by providing us with a replacement cockpit. This also includes the upper fuselage decking. This is a VERY thin casting an as such displays some warpage. However, the thinness that caused it also makes it easy to cure. Either run the part under hot water to straighten it, or perform some controlled gluing to get it flat.

But I am getting ahead of myself somewhat. In with this set is a new cockpit tub, a pair of inner bulkhead sections, new instrument panel, control stick, gun sight and a new seat with molded on belt detail. Also are two types of vacuformed canopy, one with a raised bump for a mirror and one without.

A fine new set that is sure to improve the look of your Trumpeter Su-15TM considerably.
