Pavla U 7285: CT 52 Recon Pod




Scott Van Aken


resin, for Heller 1/72 Mirage IV

One of the missions of France's Mirage IV bomber fleet was high speed, high altitude reconnaissance. For that they used the very sophisticated CT 52 recon pod. Pavla has provided that pod for your use.

On the two sprues are the pod itself, and the various camera faces. The instruction guide shows you exactly where each one goes. What is not provided are any camera bay windows. These will have to be cut from clear acetate from your stash. No cutting guide is provided, but then again, I'm not sure one would be of much help as each is pretty much a cut and fit sort of thing.

A neat addition and something that will help make your next Mirage IV project stand out.

As with all Pavla resin pieces, the detail work is superb and a major improvement over the kit parts.
