Pavla U72-100: MiG-15 bis nose underside




Scott Van Aken


Resin for the HobbyBoss kit .

More great bits for the Hobby Boss MiG-15bis from Pavla. This particular set is a replacement undernose section that includes the intake and nose gear well. This is all molded into one piece and is superbly detailed. One does have to remove the similar section from the Hobby Boss kit to use it. The set includes new nose gear doors and cannon barrels. Not unexpectedly, the gun barrels broke from the resin pour stub and while two of them are still floating around the package, the third is not to be found. These can be replaced by either stretched sprue or very fine tubing.

Pavla provides complete instructions including color information along with this set. This with some of their other sets will make for an incredibly detailed model.
