1/32 Trumpeter English Electric Lightning - Replacement Corrected Canopies


Recommended Posts

MODS - Just spotted Ali posted this on 1 May and I missed that before-  please either delete the post or merge with his

 

Thanks and apologies for the extra work !

 

 

I don't think Ali has posted on this yet but I came across these and just had to order 2 sets for my Trumpy Lightnings.

I have had both kits since they came out and not touched them as for me the highly peculiar shape of the glasshouse was such that it just put me off while my skills are nowhere near good enough to do a fix.  The canopy area is one part of the "Frightning" that kind of sticks out a mile so for me these sets are a God send

 

Looks like Ali has come to the rescue so those two will be coming out of the stash of doom soon.  :hmmm::D

I have two sets for my Trumpys and they look excellent. The canopy framing has been rendered wider to correct the misangled and flimsy greenhouse framing in the kit parts, and there is interior detail and masks included. Gets ☆☆☆☆☆ from this modeller.

Now I'm wondering if these could be adjusted to fit the Echelon kit. One of the reasons I've parked this on the shelf of doom again is the smoked yellow actetate of the aged vac canopy. Since I'd be doing it canopy open, only the windshield would need to fit the kit.......... Bit of a gamble though.

Hi Paul

 

no they cannot be easily adjusted. However I intend to do a canopy set for the Echelon kit, so just wait a little longer.

 

cheers Ali
