Pavla U 72-143: Sunderland I Propellers




Scott Van Aken


For the Italeri 1/72 kit

Next in the latest line of Pavla upgrade pieces is also for the recently issued Italeri 1/72 Sunderland. This is a set of detailed hubs and propellers. Apparently the kit items are a bit light on detail and may well have misshapen propeller blades. Not having the kit I am not sure, but that is usually the reason for an upgrade set. The blades are butt fit to the hubs so it may be a wise move to drill a small hole in the base of the blade and in the hub for a section of wire. I am not sure if any other aircraft used this blade/hub combo, but if so, they could be used there as well.
