Pavla C 72106: Sea Vixen FAW.1 Cockpit Set




Scott Van Aken


For the Cyberhobby kit

After a resin seat, the most popular upgrade set for a kit is a cockpit set. People love to show off the detail that can be provided by a well done set and this latest Pavla set certainly does that. Like most sets, a bit of work needs to be done on the existing kit to get all the bits in place. In this case, the forward external avionics hatch panels have to be removed as well as the instrument panel  anti-glare shield. The navigators hatch needs to be enlarged to fit the properly sized resin replacement.

After that, everything will pretty much fit into place. This set is a complete replacement for the kit bits and includes new seats, interior walls, the various instrument panels and other bits. I appreciate that Pavla has decided to bag the control sticks and the plethora of small switches separately. This will help prevent these small pieces from breakage during shipment and mine all survived totally intact. Pavla provides a full set of instructions and a most complete painting guide for this one, so it should not be difficult for even the relative newcomer to complete the set.
