Pavla C 72076: Mi-17 Cockpit Set




Scott Van Aken


 Resin for the Hobby Boss kit.

Moving onto helicopters, here is a superb replacement cockpit for the Hobby Boss kit. I'm not sure if this is good for an Mi-8 as well, but perhaps. The set is not sized for the KP Mi-8, but it might fit that kit as well. The set includes a full cockpit, upper inside roof section, two seats, both collective and cyclic controls, rudder pedals, a lever of unknown use, instrument panels, and a rear cockpit door. It is molded to Pavla's usual high standards and comes with a complete set of instructions and painting guide. About the only cutting needed is to remove the kit cockpit floor to allow this one to fit in its place. As you might imagine, there is also a cabin upgrade set and that will be covered later.
