Revell-Monogram 1/48 kit

Here is another nice upgrade set for the new Revell PV-1. This is a cockpit set that is designed to replace the one provided in the kit. The set will require a bit of grinding to remove sidewall detail and replace it with the resin sections. This set also uses parts of the extant cockpit in conjunction with the new resin parts, such as rudder pedals and control columns.

The set includes new seats with belt detail, control wheels, throttle quadrant, instrument panel, sidewalls, rear bulkhead, cockpit floor, and instrument center console. The set comes with complete photo instructions that show what bits are to be salvaged from the kit cockpit and just where everything goes.

The parts themselves are superbly cast with no molding glitches. There are resin pour stubs to remove, but this is standard stuff for resin sets. In all a fine addition to add that much more detail to your Revell PV-1
