In the bag
Packed in a resealble bag, the one resin part is well cast and has a large pour plug at the bottom of the seat.
The detail for the seat is exceptional considering the small size of the bang seat. Harness detail is moulded onto the seat cushion and with careful painting should really pop the detail out.
The seat has the ejection pull rings cast onto the seat and they do look quite delicate. The exterior of the seat has raised and recessed detail moulded on, and a quick look at photos of the real seat shows that it is a pretty good match profile wise, but the head rest is different to the picture of the real seat I have seen.
The Pavla replacement seat is not destined for any particular manufacturers kit, so it should fit any 1/72nd MiG-17/MiG-19/J-6 model.
No instructions or paint guide are supplied.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on AEROSCALE.
SUMMARY
Highs: Well cast and well detailed.
Lows: None really
Verdict: This seat will improve the cockpit of any kit of the MiG-17/MiG-19/J-6.

About Andy Brazier (betheyn)
FROM: ENGLAND - SOUTH EAST, UNITED KINGDOM

I started modelling in the 70's with my Dad building Airfix aircraft kits. The memory of my Dad and I building and painting a Avro Lancaster on the kitchen table will always be with me. I then found a friend who enjoyed building models, and between us I think we built the entire range of 1/72 Airfi...
