Pavla U72-115: Spitfire Mk IX control surfaces (early)




Scott Van Aken


 For the new Airfix kit

Pavla has done a number of Spitfire upgrade sets and so it is not surprising that they would have a number of different ones for the recent Airfix 1/72 Spitfire IX. This one has all five control surfaces as well as new early horizontal stabilizers. The kit also includes trim tabs for the elevators, something one rarely sees in control surface upgrade sets. This set is a direct replacement for the kit parts in the back and one will need to cut away the old ailerons. 

As with all Pavla resin sets, this one is very well done. No instructions needed.
