Pavla U 48-23: F9F-2 Rudder, Elevator and Jet Pipe




Scott Van Aken


Resin for the Trumpeter kit

Guess I should have done these in order, but here is a set for the back of your Trumpeter/Hobbycraft 1/48 F9F-2 Panther. This set includes a set of horizontal stabs with new elevators. These are molded in the down position as the trim tabs and properly deflected the other way. There is also a two part rudder and a new jet pipe with compressor detail molded inside.

Like other Pavla sets, this one is superbly molded and once you remove the bits from their small pour stubs and clean up the edges, it will be ready to install and paint.

Another fine set from Pavla and one that will come in quite handy for future projects.
