need help!
Posted by JJFlyer on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 10:48 AM

hello,

I have been working on a 1/48 revell B29 and lost the upper canopy. I ordered a replacement but it didn't ship by the 13th so does anyone have any ideas on how to get a replacement canopy? 

thanks,

JJflyer

Squadron does a vac replacement, though I'm not sure how readily available it may be. They (of course) are showing it as 'In Stock Soon'...so you may have to hunt for it.

Here's the link: go

Good luck!

How far along are you with building the B-29?

I just need to add engines, canopy, and decals now. although it may take me a while since I just broke my collarbone and will be in a sling for about 2-3 weeks.

Ouch! Too bad about your collarbone.

I recently built that model and there are issues regarding how the engines are attached to the nacelles. Also, the canopy is a different curvature than the fuselage making attachment difficult. Go here to see how I solved both issues.
