SEPECAT Jaguar windscreen replacement


Recommended Posts

Hi all

In keeping with the trend of my Kittyhawk Jaguar build, which is lurching from drama to drama, I have now cracked the windscreen while masking it and am wondering if anyone knows of a vacform Jaguar canopy.

 

I have had a fair search and can't find anyone who makes one...

 

Thanks team

Have you tried to contact Kittyhawk about a replacement?

I have sent emails to the three email adresses suggested in various forums and the one to 'SophiaLynm@gmail.com has bounced as "invalid recipient".

 

I will also try and send them a FB message...

 

Have you tried any other contacts means?

If crack is not very big and parts of windscreen are not apart, you may try to dip it in the Future. It may help, i did it once and result was very good. Crack was seen only from one angle and was invisible from others. But changing cracked windscreen will be more effective remedy.

Their was an announcementt on their FB page that currently they can only process replacement parts for those defective in kits even if you are offering to pay at the present time

Might be case sensitive , try  -  sophialynm@gmail.com  -  instead , I got an email from her at that address this morning notifying me of some new releases.

I have just sent another email.  I have now tried 3 email addresses, left a comment on the FB page and sent a FB message to Sophia.

Thanks for your suggestion.  I have tried Future and, while the crack was masked somewhat, it is still pretty obvious- still that may yet be my only option!

If they can't sort you out with a replacement, drop me a PM, I can make you a resin replacement, I'm currently building a prototype Jag from the kittyhawk kit.

Hi rodenlee,

 

I was building this kit a long while back, and my Cousins Kids got a hold of it sitting on my desk and played with it and broke it beyond repair, I threw the kit out, but I'm almost positive I've got the main Canopy here, if it is it, you are more than welcome to it

I've taken a picture of what I've got, the problem is, I don't know how to upload pictures to te site, I've only ever uploaded one picture, and that was a fluke

You need to upload the image to a photo hosting site and then link it to the thread. Instructions in the linked thread
