Pavla U 48-36: Bf-109E Flight Control Surfaces




Scott Van Aken


 For Airfix kit

This time, Pavla has provided us with very nicely done control surfaces for the Airfix 109E. These differ from the kit parts by having sharper trailing edges and are totally devoid of the 'hills and valleys' that Airfix has molded into the kit. I have included an image of the Airfix rudder along with the Pavla replacement to show you what I mean. All the other control surfaces in the kit are similarly molded.

There are no instructions as none are needed since these are all replacing kit bits. Thankfully, no cutting away of the control surfaces are required as Airfix has already done that for you! The molding is very good and these should add that extra bit of accuracy to the Airfix offering.
