Michael Morris Posted November 14, 2022 Share Posted November 14, 2022 I'm looking to build a mini diorama of a NASA astronaut climbing into his/her T-38 jet with ground crew in the scene as well. I'd like to keep the whole thing small, do I'm opting for 1/72 scale. I'm on the look out for an example of Hasagawa's venerable old kit as a base for the display https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegawa-02059-t-38a-talon-combo--241282 with the company's US pilot and ground crew kit to flesh out the scene. I'd like the scene to show the pilot actually entering the plane, so I want to have the canopy open. The Hasagawa model doesn't have this option. Do here are my question - Does anyone make an aftermarket opening canopy for a T-38 in 1/72 scale? If not, what would be the best way to cut the clear part on the kit? Before anyone suggests, just do the diorama in 1/48 and use the Trumpeter or Wolfpack T-38 kits - I don't have the room to display it, hence why I want to do it in 1/72. Thanks.
