Missing Canopy
Posted by DMP on Sunday, March 10, 2019 3:50 PM

I really enjoy building "odd" aircraft models (XP-75, B-10, P-35, P-36, etc.) so I'm usually dealing with short or limited run kits.  I recently picked up Czech Models XP-55 Ascender off of Ebay.  It's an interesting little kit, unfortunately it's missing the vacuum formed canopy!  The model was sealed when I recieved it, so evidently I got a factory error.  Scouring the inter-web, it appears Czech Models is no longer around and hasn't been for a few years.  Squadron carried Czech Models in the past, but they were unable to help me.  So it appears I need to build a canopy from scratch. I've thought of building the canopy frame out of strips and then in-filling the windows with clear "something or other", but that is waaay beyond my skill level!  I guess I could buy another kit, but that seems like a waste of money just for a canopy. I'm open to any and all suggestions!
