The multi part canopy post on FB was in July 2016 with all of the replies more than a year old. 

 

Personally I think the 3 piece canopy is a fail for me. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Over engineered for 1/48 and something that would be okay in 1/32 or larger.

 

Cheers,

 

John

Gotcha.  I do recall that now....  I thought there was something new, like people were saying the shape was off or something.

 

Thanks,

I'm sorry that I missed the pre-order offer, but I'll still be buying two of these kits as soon as they arrive in the UK !

One-part flaps?

I'm really curious to know thickness of this part and injection time of this sprue.
