Grumman F-14 Tomcat replacement canopy for the Tamiya kit
BEFORE ORDERING PLEASE READ TERMS FOR ORDERING AND SHIPPING
Replacement F-14 Tomcat canopy for the 1/32 Tamiya kits.
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.
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.
