The vacform canopies I sent for have arrived. For some reason a couple of extra canopies have been supplied. Probably because there is a black mark on two on the main sheet. But the marks are not on the clear areas. So I’ve got an extra one for the F82. Good to have a spare in case of mistakes. I will mask them before cutting them from the backing sheet. Will be easier that way I think.

I’m pleased to say the new canopy looks to be a good fit with the fuselage halves clamped together. So I’ve finished glueing one set of fuselage halves together. I glued the tail section a couple of days ago. Now that’s set I can coax the forward section together. A few clamps needed!

Very neat build approach, Dave. Used to see these kits long ago and thought they were what ifs. Thanks for the info.

Cheers,
Richard

Old fashioned modelling requires old fashioned filler. So I’ve dug out my old tube of Squadron Green. It’s several years old but hadn’t dried up. Must be all that lovely harmful Toluene in it!.
