Pavla C 72094: Mirage F.1 CT cockpit upgrade set




Scott Van Aken


 For Heller kit

For some, just a few bits and pieces are not enough as they want the full monty when it comes to cockpit sets. Pavla provides that for the 1/72 Heller Mirage F.1CT. This kit has needed a nice cockpit set for quite a while and I'm pleased to see that Pavla has produced one. This might fit the Airfix kit, but it has not been designed as such.

Included in the set is a brand new and very detailed cockpit tub with the appropriate seat, a one-piece instrument panel and anti-glare coaming, new control stick and sidewall pieces. The cockpit tub section includes the nose wheel well section so a new nose gear door is also included.

Instructions are well done and show any kit mods needed to install the set as well as painting information for the tub and seat.  The set also has a new vacuformed canopy that is molded in two sections so you can have it open to display the work you have done in the cockpit.

It is a great set and is just the ticket to spruce up this older kit.
