And one from me. The Rob Taurus range of vacform replacement canopies now available from HLJ. This range includes numerous Japanese types in both 1/72nd and 1/48th scales. The canopies are made of a more rigid material than most vacforms, easier to cut out and install but still crystal clear.

Thanks to Derek and Gary for compiling and sending this information.

Hello Nick;
Thank you for the update. Now, if only an aftermarket company would see fit to issue a correct late model A6M drop tank!
Kind Regards, noel

Hello Nick,

That ATAIUoSEA J2M photo shows the plane's 'set' in the air to good effect. The curvature of the top forward fuselage line is very apparent in the view.

Thanks for taking time to post the Resin Art after market items. Where to obtain the sets?

Hi Ken

The links include the host websites, you just have to modify the URL by deleting the last bit to get back "home".

They are all available from Hannants but according to Resin Art's website they have West Coast Hobbys as USA and Canada importer:-

Hi Nick,
I purchased the 1/48 Pete 'wire cover" set mentioned above, I would like to inform other modelers this set should be avoided since the parts are both too small (look like they are 1/72!)and do not reflect the fact the wire covers were of different lengths depending on upper/lower wing. HTH,
