repair a cracked canopy?
Posted by MrDave on Saturday, December 8, 2018 3:02 PM

I just cracked a Tamiya 1/48th F-16 smoked canopy.  The canopy is in tack with a hairline crack where the mold line used to be.  Is there a way to repair this?  My loving wife says nobody will see it once I put it in it's dispaly case.  This is a gift and I really don't want to short change this 33 yr Air Force vet.

Thanks.

Thanks.
In Him

The crack will be visible, no matter how you try to repair it. Contact Tamiya customer service for a replacement part.

I have one I'm not going to use.  PM me your address and I'll send it out.

Thanks,

Mr Dave - I received your check to cover shipping.  Another really nice gesture.  Modelers are good people!  BTW - let's see that F-16!

Thanks,

John
