Somebody recently put one on Ebay with "buy it now" for $150.  It didn't last long....

 

I agree with Dave above; we need to the whole nose and intake correction too.

 

If Paul could even produce his wonderful resin clear parts for Chris with some sort of collaboration, I think that could lead to a whole new generation of A-7 corrections, that actually might be better than the one I have.

Chris has all the tooling for the intake and canopy corrections, and Paul has the technology and know-how for the resin clear parts.     I know Im talking out of my you-know-where, because I am obviously not in Pauls nor Chris's shoes, but a collaboration seems like the most work and money cost effective way to get the complete correction set back into production.

this would be great, i have used my set on an A 7E and its certainly nice to work with; but a clear resin canopy would be even better. i need another for my -B conversion that i have i the stash

I have 2 A-7 waiting to build, so a corrected canopy would be great.

 

The air intake is the other major point.... I corrected it with a LOT of work

I have two Zacto inlet/canopy sets finding a home on a pair of A-7Es but the project is stalled because of fear of messing up the vacform parts.

A resin windshield and canopy hood to fit the Zacto resin frames would be perfect. Yes, I'd buy two sets right now.

I would be in for a couple of sets too. Have an A-7 in the stash desperately needing a nose job.
