 None of the available kits depict the so-called Ko-type rear canopy correctly, being angular in section rather than rounded. This is difficult to correct so hopefully an accurate vacform replacement will be forthcoming. This set costs 130 Kč.

VM72057 E13A Jake Canopy Mask



A set of canopy masks (shown above) designed for the 1/72 scale Hasegawa Aichi E13A 'Jake' kits to mask off the canopy and lower fuselage glazing. This set costs 150 Kč. Currently the only game in town in this scale the Hasegawa kit suffers from a too tall canopy and shortened rear fuselage, the two discrepancies combining to flaw the overall appearance. The various Hasegawa Jake releases were featured at the blog here but Part 3, intended to focus on the details of the actual kit in relation to the real aircraft as well as its colours, has not yet been published.  




With thanks to Jan Hajicek for kindly alerting Aviation of Japan to these welcome new products. There are many more in the pipeline available for pre-order at the Dead Design Models website shop.

These are brilliant! Thanks to Dead Design Models for producing these - even one for my forlorn LS Dinah, currently languishing in my loft. I never thought I'd see any aftermarket for an old kit such as that. This truly is the Golden Age of Modelling.

Cheers,
Bill

Hey Bill, thanks for nice comment.

One of my motto is (even though it could sounds weird):

"Old kits are not DEAD :-)"

I'd love to cover as many types as possible. It just takes time to find and obtain the older ones.

Nick, as to reply to your notes for Ki-44 and E13A canopies.

Actually, the replacement Vacu canopy for Hasegawa Ki-44 already exists, Rob Taurus is producing it under cat. no. 72069 - http://www.rob-taurus.cz/index.htm
I'll consider producing E13A Jake replacement canopy, too for future.


Thank you
Jan

I made a mistake in the previous response.
I meant replacement for Ki-27 which is also produced by Rob Taurus under cat. no. 72004. It features corrected shape of both rear parts.

Hi Jan

Thanks for that. I haven't seen the Rob Taurus Ki-27 canopy but will check it out.

A correctly proportioned vacform canopy would greatly improve the Hasegawa Jake kit. The rear fuselage can be lengthened by cutting it and inserting a plastic plug.

Regards
Nick

Thanks for the heads-up, Nick.
