    Help! White Spirit's clouded by Betty canopy

    To be honest I'm not sure. I found it in one of my boxes and it was also used so it might have been even finer because of that. It's very smooth though.

    You're not wrong there. Even that Formula 3000 is a boring fairly modern one. They looked much better in the 70s (along with F1 cars)

    Ok I used very, very fine sandpaper inside the canopy and I could see the white frosted look coming off then I finished it with toothpaste.........and it's worked. The cloudiness has gone and it now looks pretty much as it was before the white spirit accident. It has a very, very slight less shiny look at the moment but you can hardly notice that and I reckon I can polish it up more.....so great result. Thanks all for the suggestions!
  4. At last. Great looking plane. Hope they do the cab windows in clear plastic though.

    Revell Phantom FGR2 1/48

    To be honest I'm surprised anyone would think it has any new parts. Revell rarely do that.

    Thanks all. I haven't had much time over the past week or so but I'll give it a try later starting with some very fine sandpaper I picked up.

    Good combination. Again worth a try, cheers!

    Thanks I'm not a fan of vacform canopies to be honest but I'll see what happens.

    It's a Hasegawa G4M2 Betty. I think you might agree that getting a replacement from them is pretty much a lost cause.

    Might be worth a try. I've never used it (I think it's called Johnson's Clear over here).
  11. There's already a few C130's around though. Whilst this isn't the most attractive of aircraft (mainly because of the bulbous nose) it's more interesting than another Hercules.

    I think you're probably right. One thing I might try is to darken it. I've got some Tamiya smoke somewhere.
  13. Accidently tipped it over the canopy and now It's got white patches everywhere. I've tried polishing it out with toothpaste but it's still there. Any ideas?

    Thanks for that. Didn't realise it had been released before by MPM.
