Pavla V 72-79: BAC Strikemaster canopy




Scott Van Aken


 For Airfix kit

It is the norm for Pavla to offer bits from its cockpit sets as individual items for those who don't want to go the cockpit route. In this case, it is the canopy for the Airfix 1/72 BAC Strikemaster. This follows Pavla's current trend of offering the windscreen and the canopy section separately. Now I know that some would rather have the full closed canopy, but this way makes it easier to model with the canopy open. Included in this set is the clear lens to go over the nose mounted landing light. Thanks to the thickish plastic, it will be easy to cut and install.

Personally, I'm quite pleased that Pavla is taking the time to do bits for older kits as many of them will benefit a great deal from the additional detail.
