Pavla U 72-158: Blenheim I Main U/C Wheel Bays




Scott Van Aken


For the Airfix 1/72 kit

This is the first set I've seen for the new Airfix 1/72 Blenheim I kit and typical of Pavla sets, it is quite complete and very detailed. This set is used to trick out the wheel wells and is used in conjunction with kit parts. One does have to do some prep work in terms of thinning down the inside of the lower wings in this area so it is not a simple 'plug and play' set. You basically get new well interior sides, a rear bulkhead and various interior braces. A pair of small pistons not included in the model are provided as are replacement gear doors.

The set includes complete instructions on how to assemble the set. A very nice option for those wanting more detail out of the Airfix kit.
