Pavla U 72-122: Sea Harrier FA.2 Radome




Scott Van Aken


 For Airfix kit

There has been a bit of commentary on some inaccuracies in the new Airfix Sea Harrier so Pavla has provided some upgrade bits for it. This particular item is a new radome. If you look at the image above, the Pavla item is in dark grey. The differences are rather subtle, but the most obvious is the blunter nose on the kit part. The Pavla nose also has a bit more detail and it seems that the sides are not as 'flat' as on the kit part. By this I mean that it more of a curve from the base to the tip than on the kit part.

As with all Pavla parts, the molding is quite good and from test fitting, I've noticed that one can just slightly trim the pour stub and get it to fit right in the nose of the kit.
