Pavla U 4830 TSR-2 Main Wheel Well




Scott Van Aken


resin. For the Airfix 1/48 kit

This particular set includes one of the largest and most detailed resin pieces I have seen in a long time. The entire wheel well assembly is provided in a single cast piece. This has the benefit of not being fiddly to install and requiring little more than painting before installation. The set includes what appears to be retraction assembly items as one uses kit kit struts. All the various pieces are shown in the assembly instructions as well as all painting information. It appears that there is no modification needed to the airframe, making it a drop fit. This set is also made in the new dark grey resin and I'm sure that this is now a standard material for the folks at Pavla. The amount of detail that the set provides is really superb. I found no molding glitches and just the usual light flash on some of the smaller parts. An excellent replacement set that will be appreciated by TSR-2 fans.
