Pavla C 72086: T-2 Buckeye interior set




Scott Van Aken


resin. For the Revell/Matchbox kit

With the recent reissue of a long desired kit (at least by some of us), the T-2 Buckeye, we finally have an interior set for it. This old Matchbox kit was released by Revell and like all Matchbox kits, has a very rudimentary interior.

This new set takes care of that problem with a completely new tub and nose wheel well  along with new instrument panels, seats, sticks, rudder pedals and a number of other items that go on the panel or interior fuselage side. The molding is very nicely done and there is full painting information provided in the three page instructions. A few parts broke free from the pour stub during shipping and so will need to be repaired before use. Also included in the set is a new vacuformed canopy so you can display it open if you wish. It is quite clear and made from relatively thick plastic so those who find ultra-thin vac bits to be frustrating will not have an issue with this one. Part of the upgrade is a brace and piston for the canopy itself. Like all Pavla resin, this one is very well done and will really enhance that old Matchbox kit better than any other single piece upgrade.
