Pavla U 72-123: Sea Harrier FA.2 Control Surfaces




Scott Van Aken


 For Airfix kit

Adding to the bits for the new Airfix Sea Harrier FA.2 is this set from Pavla for the flight control surfaces. For the wings, we have new flaps and ailerons. This will require cutting away the old ones, but they will be worth it as the trailing edges are much finer than those on the kit. There is also a new set of tail planes and a new fin and rudder. There are some differences in the shape of these compared to the kit, but like the nose they are subtle. Two pair of flap hinges are provided; one for flaps up and another for flaps down.

There are no instructions as none are needed since these are all replacing kit bits. The molding is very good and these should add that extra bit of accuracy to the Airfix offering.
