Product description

Improved P-51B canopy set for the Trumpeter 1/32 kits
This set has been a long time in the making and it would not have happened if I had not had commissioned Tim Perry to do the CAD drawing for the two new blown canopy sections. One for the closed position and one for the open position.
The kit screen has been improved to remove the hard / sharp corner line at the top front, a new rear dog house section has also been developed by myself with the aid of 3D CAD and printing. The blown sections and the rear have taken ages to prepare to get them to an acceptable standard to enable good clear sections to be cast but are now at that point.
Note canopy rails are also supplied as 3D printed parts.

This set may work with the Revell kit but that is up to the modeller to figure out.

Please do note clear resin DOES NOT fog with superglue like styrene parts, but care is still needed.

These clear resin parts can be buffed with normal buffing sponges and shiners sold by many vendors, nail bars and modelling companies.
Recently I have found that the Micro-mesh branded products are very good in polishing up these cast canopies.
It is best not to use aggressive sanding materials, other than where to assist in trimming the casting material.
Also use you favourite, clear dipping liquid to enhance clarity if desired.

Due to the size of the parts, although very light they will need to be shipped as a small parcel and not as a large envelop.
