Pavla has recently released three detail sets in 1/72 scale.

S 72043 - Escapac IE-1 seats for S-3A Viking

 

 

Two resin seats are supplied. Each is presented as one piece with harness and cushion detail cast in place.



C 72056 - Grumman S2F-1 Tracker Cockpit and Operator's Station

This terrifically detailed cockpit, pictured at the top of the page, comprises around 16 parts in pale yellow resin and includes the pilot's, co-pilot's and operators' stations. Seats are also included with cast-on harnesses.

This cockpit represents a massive improvement over Hasegawa's sparse front office.

An essential accessory for anyone wanting a detailed 1/72 scale Tracker.



V 72-61 HP Halifax GR.Mk.III Canopy

 

 

This is a straightforward vacform replacement for the Matchbox 1/72 scale Halifax III canopy and nose cap. This kit has also recently been re-released by Revell.

All Recommended.

Thanks to Pavla for the review sample
