Cockpit Detail Set for A-5C Fantan

Recommended Posts

I am planning to build a 1/48 A-5C Fantan but you all might know that AA Models(Sinomodel) is the only 1/48 available(or not, for that matter) with a very crude cockpit, seat and IP. 

 

In your opinion, which version of MiG-19 cockpit detail set should I use?  There are some available by Neomega. 

 

Please advise. Thank you.

Hello gents,

 

I would appreciate your suggestions regarding this topic. 

 

Pavla has a MiG-19 cockpit set. Neomega does too. I am not sure which one to choose. 

 

I tried to find some cockpit shots of the A-5C Fantan but not much luck. Any idea?

Would anyone actually notice if it was slightly wrong, as long as the seat looked the part I personally wouldn't be too worried.

I bought a SBS Models for the AA kit I have in the stash. It looked about right compared to the few photos I found online and info on the plane is so rare, who's going to call you out if it's wrong? I haven't tried building it yet. I also read the Pakistan put in a Martin Baker ejection seat. I'd have to dig though my references at home to figure out which version.

I can't speak for the Pavla set, but I have a number of NeOmega sets in 72nd and I've been very satisfied with the fit and the detail.

Good luck with your choice!

Depending upon which air force you are modeling for. I know that Pakistan Air Force operated A-5 for a period of time and they had Martin Baker ejection seats. Dont know which versions.
