A-7 Canopy Correction

Recommended Posts

...but a resin canopy and windscreen would be very welcome...

 

 

True. I have Chris's A-7 correction, and IIRC the vac glass is decent, but not like a FM&P windscreen and canopy would be!   Also, with no replacements available ATM, Im hesitant to even start it.

Youse Guys are killing me ....

 

 

I know....................sorry, but your stuff is grand Paul, and I know you're not busy with anything else!     :lol:   LOL!    

 

Although its not a full kit, even a canopy/windscreen kit would take some work and time.

If i remember correctly, Chris stopped the A-7 and Su-27 canopy correction sets because of the Vaccu process, which was not easy and reliable. 

Same thing for Gary (GT Resin) for the F-105 canopy correction.

 

But Paul seems to perfectly master the clear resin casting, as well as HPH or Alleycat. But Paul is in the US. So could there be a collaboration between resin producers so that Paul could be a clear resin subcontractor for other people?

I dont know if it would be possible or not, but it would help Paul to save a lot of time as the master would be supplied by the correction set original designer.

I think it's been about 2 years now that I have been waiting for the Zacto A-7 correction set... About a year ago someone offered me a set for (IIRC) +/- $200, some days I think I should have taken it!

 

I agree with Chuck though - a replacement canopy would be fantastic. I can through sheer brute force and some "creative sculpting" (and lots of Squadron putty) fix the intake issue, but I'm a Dead Loss when it comes to vacuforming my own canopies.

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.
