AZ models 1/72 bf109 replacement open canopys

Recommended Posts

Hi does any one know if there is a after market open canopy for the az model 1/72 BF109 or if any off them will fit.

Rob Taurus vac-form canopies for Fine Molds fit AZ quite well. Not perfectly, but then if you're doing it open it doesn't matter. Of course, you have to cut it up yourself.

A trick I’ve often used to hide minor fit issues, is to use the kit windscreen, and only the opening section of a vac-form canopy (and maybe the rear section too, depending on which type of 109). The 109’s side-hinged affair will look fine this way, even if it would have been a poor fit in the closed position.

Some AZm boxings include both the early and the later "Erla" canopies. An open Erla can be built by cutting the rear parts off the 3-piece affair, leaving you just the windscreen section, and vice versa on the 2-piece one. Scale drawings show some differences between those winscreens. In 1:72, yeah right, tell me that they are visible :coolio:
