GRUMMAN F-14 TOMCAT REPLACEMENT CANOPY FOR THE 1/32 SCALE TRUMPETER KIT. £23.00

 

 

Replacement F-14 Tomcat canopy for the 1/32 Trumpeter kits.

https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/grumman-f-14-tomcat-replacement-canopy-for-the-trumpeter-kit

This is a canopy set developed from the kit parts. The size and the shape of the canopy has not been changed. The main reason for this recast canopy the inevitable centre seam mould line and the anti static discharges that Trumpeter decided to put on the outside of the canopy instead of the inside. The modeller will need to add these by using a decal or tape. This is a large canopy and there is NO where to hide.

Remove from the casting stubs with sharp fine, razor saw, sharp blade scribing, or a cutting disc on a rotary tool.
When attaching to the fuselage, even when using super glue the parts will not bloom like plastic parts. However still do take care.

These are clear cast resin parts.

Please allow up to 3-4 weeks for manufacturing. I will email as soon as I have shipped the parts.


 

GRUMMAN F-14 TOMCAT REPLACEMENT CANOPY FOR THE 1/32 SCALE TAMIYA KIT. £23.00

 

 

Replacement F-14 Tomcat canopy for the 1/32 Tamiya kits.

https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/grumman-f-14-tomcat-replacement-canopy-for-the-tamiya-kit

This is a canopy set developed from the kit parts. The size and the shape of the canopy has not been changed. The reason for this recast canopy is distortion issues, the inevitable centre seam mould line and in some cases dirt or inclusions cast in the canopy. The kit supplies the lower and rear canopy frame on the main section as a separate part, as can be seen this is now cast all as one piece with the canopy. This is a large canopy and there is NO where to hide. Getting this canopy set to this stage was a huge challenge, however I am now pleased to offer it as a replacement canopy set.

Remove from the casting stubs with sharp fine, razor saw, sharp blade scribing, or a cutting disc on a rotary tool.

REPLACEMENT CANOPY FOR GLOSTER METEOR F.8 EARLY STYLE FOR CURRENT 1/72 SCALE AIRFIX KIT. £5.00

 

 

This is a new canopy set developed from the kit parts as all the boxings that I received as well as a set of replacement parts from Airfix all have a blemish on the main canopy part on the port inside.

https://aerocraftmodels.bigcartel.com/product/replacement-canopy-for-gloster-meteor-f-8-early-style-for-current-airfix-kit

On discussion with Airfix they acknowledge the problem but it looks like this is the way it will be.
You may be lucky and have a perfect canopy, or not be bothered by it or willing to fix it yourselves.
So with that I have removed the blemish and I am offering these to those that want or need them.

Any and all masks made to fit the original kit will work.

There are two clear cast resin parts

Please allow up to 2 to 3 weeks for manufacturing. I will email as soon as I have shipped the parts.
