If you are like me you were excited when Revell decided to re-release their 1/72nd scale F-101B Voodoo.
Pavla has released this full replacement cockpit in resin. The set has a new cockpit tub, two ejection seats with molded belt details, new instrument panels, a control stick, rudder pedals and a new cover for over the front instrument panel. Also included is a three piece replacement strut to display the canopy opened. Thirteen parts in all.
The instructions indicate which parts of the kit cockpit need to be removed from the fuselage for the new cockpit to fit. There is also some painting information but it isn’t very detailed and you will want some additional references.
The Revell kit comes with decals for the instruments and I may try to use them to add to the resin parts. The new ejection seats look fantastic and much easier than fitting the multiple piece kit parts and adding details.
Overall this looks like a great set for enhancing the kit however the cost is almost as much as the kit itself.
Thanks to Pavla Models and IPMS/USA for the review kit.
