Crisply moulded in very pale yellow resin, Pavla has captured all the
detail contained in the full size real thing in 1/72 scale. In this
review I cover three cockpits for the MIG 25P, Fiat G.91R3, and Mirage
IV. The cockpits provided in the model kits are of an average standard
compared to the detail provided by Pavla in their replacement cockpits
is excellent. The parts have a small amount of residual resin flash that
is easily removed with a sharp hobby knife.
Assembly will be straightforward with no apparent modification required
of the kit plastic to allow the new cockpits to fit. Modellers with very
basic modelling skills will be able to install these detail sets.
The instrument panels, cockpit tubs and ejection seats have some
excellent raised and relief detail. A wash and careful paint
highlighting will add even more life to the resin cockpit. The seats
have the harness straps cast onto the seat.
The sets reviewed are:
C72061 MIG-25P replacement for the Condor kit
It is important to note that this set is mislabeled. It is for the
MiG-25P, not the MiG-21P (there is no such variant of the MiG-21
This detail set contains seven resin parts, ejection seat, cockpit
tub, instrument panel, instrument shroud, sidewalls and control column.
The detail on the seat has to be seen to believed.
C72059 Mirage IV for the Heller Kit
This detail set contains eight resin parts, two ejection seats,
cockpit tub, two instrument panels, control column rudder pedals and
C72060 Fiat G.91R3
This detail set contains four resin parts - ejection seat, cockpit
tub, instrument panel, and control column. The detail in the cockpit tub
A separate seat for the G.91 is available as set number S72044.
These are all very nice upgrades to increase the cockpit detail in
the three kits and will look very realistic when fully assembled and
All Highly Recommended
Thanks to Pavla for the review sample
