Need to find a replacement part
Posted by MilTatMan on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 11:51 AM

Help! I was working on one of my all-time favorite planes, in this case an Academy 1/72nd Hurricane Mk IIC and somehow managed to lose the tiny front windscreen. I've scoured the instructions (but can't read the Korean or Japanese) and even tried the website for Academy but can't find a way to buy a replacement part. I've nearly finished the kit and now this happens. Does anyone know where I can order a replacement part or perhaps even a 3rd party manufacturer that might make a comparable part? 

Any and all help greatly appreciated, hope I posted this in the correct thread.

Thank you,

Tom

Well, look on Squadron at Falcon Industries. They make vac form canopies. That takes a little skill, but will give you a superior product. I don't know if they make that one.
