Vac Formed Canopy
Maestro Models, 1/48 scale

This canopy from Maestro is among the best vacuum formed canopies that I have seen. The transparency is crystal clear and the canopy frames are crisply moulded. Maestro also supplies two canopies just in case you make an error with the first canopy when cutting it out.
The canopy is designed for the Academy Hawker Hunter F.6 and FGA.9 kits where the canopy supplied in the kit is quite thick and cannot be displayed in the open position. The Hunter has a sliding canopy and the Academy canopy butts against the rear bulkhead and is too thick to fit over the rear spine if displayed in the open position. This canopy solves the problem, being thin enough to fit over the rear spine and displayed in the open position.
Thanks to Maestro Models for the review sample
