Pavla S72043, S-3A Viking Ejection Seat




Scott Van Aken


Resin. For the Hasegawa 1/72 S-3A/B kit

The latest set of seats is a pair of Escapac IE-1 seats as one commonly found in the S-3A/B Viking. As one who has spent considerable time crawling around on one of these while repairing various bits and pieces on the aircraft, I can tell you that they got the look of these seats just right. that includes the pieces above the seat that are designed to smash through the canopy during ejection. Unfortunately, being banged about in a plastic bag has caused one of these to be broken, but repair should be rather straight forward. The belts are molded in place and so all one has to do is remove the pour stub, paint and install.
