Pavla V72-68: F-86E Canopy




Scott Van Aken


Vacuformed plastic for the Academy/Hobbycraft kit .

Replacement canopies are one of the more popular aftermarket items. Often, the kit part is not the right shape or is a one-piece canopy or is poorly cast so that you can't see interior details. Pavla's latest replacement canopy is for the Academy/Hobbycraft kit and while listed as an F-86E, it will fit later F-86F versions as well. Pavla likes to mold its replacements in two pieces with the windscreen and canopy section separate. It is a handy way to mold them, especially if one is not good at cutting these things apart. The molding is excellent and the plastic is relatively thick so attaching it will be easier than with those that are paper thin.
