Pavla  V72-81: Spitfire Canopy Set




Scott Van Aken


Vacuform canopies

Thanks to the recent release of new mold Spitfires in 1/72 scale by Airfix, Pavla has produced this set of canopies for those kits. This set contains five canopies. Three are for the standard Spitfire I and the other two are for the Spitfire PR.IV. These canopies are superbly molded and like all their most recent canopy molds, are in sections so that you can display the canopies in the open position. A real benefit of vacuform plastic is that the faired bulges on the PR canopies can be properly done. When injected styrene is used, these are often far too thick.
