PJ Production from Belgium makes resin aftermarket accessories for aircraft, as well as some very nice resin aircraft kits. Among their many products is a series of ejection seats to replace the usually plain kit-provided examples. This particular seat is a Martin Baker Mark 10 seat. The listing isn't more specific than that, but says it is to be used in the Mirage, Alpha Jets, Hawk, F-18, Tucano, F-5, Rafale, Tornado, Sea Harrier, Eurofighter, AMX, Gripen, Shenyang, Osprey, and MB-339. Whew. The only one I'm not sure about is the F-5, but maybe the Swiss jets or some of the other foreign sales specified the Mk 10 seat. Still, plenty of jets to use the seat in.

The package comes with two seats finely cast in a yellowish tan resin. I found no bubbles or signs of miscasting. There is some very fine flash in places that is easily cleaned off with a knife edge. The seat itself comes with seatbelts already on and they look complete. The detail is sharp and will paint up well. As you can see in the accompanying pictures, I've given the seats a dark wash to help the detail stand out. It's relatively difficult to find dimensional data on ejection seats, so it's hard to say if the seats are accurately sized, but they fit well in the Mirage cockpit I set one in. I have also shown the seats next to a kit seat from an Alpha Jet kit for comparison. As you can see, they're clearly an improvement.

The sets provide two good quality seats for a small amount of money and will enhance the cockpit of any aircraft model they're put in. Recommended.

Thanks go to PJ Production for providing the sample and to IPMS/USA for allowing me to review it.
