Saab SK.60/Saab 105 Crew Ladder (483D002 for Pilot Replicas)

1:48 Pilot Replicas




We’ve just finished reviewing the new injection moulded 1:48 Saab SK.60 kit from Pilot Replicas, and have cleared away all the drool, but round two has already commenced.  As is the modern fashion, several aftermarket sets have been produced to be available on launch to augment the detail of the base kit, for those amongst us that are detail obsessed.  The sets are 3D printed, and offer incredible detail when compared to even the best injection-moulding techniques, whilst having the unexpected bonus of reducing the part count.  The sets arrive in small but sturdy cardboard boxes with an adhesive label differentiating them, and the parts inside are protected by a folded Ziploc bag, while any Photo-Etch (PE) are taped inside the lid.




This set allows your pilots easy ingress and egress from their ride, and arrives as a single part attached to its print base by the usual support tendrils.  Once they are carefully cut from the part, it is a straight forward case of latching it against the side of the cockpit and allowing gravity to do the rest.  It has been printed at a slight angle to the base to reduce the likelihood of printing lines showing up, but at this resolution they’ll disappear under a coat of primer anyway.




More superlative-worthy detail from the kit’s manufacturers that should fit like a glove to the side of the aircraft.  It begs for a crew figure approaching it or something, doesn’t it?  Watch this space.


Very highly recommended.
