Not quite sure how a solid plastic painted canopy would be preferred to an infinitely more realistic looking clear one? each to their own I suppose.


Simply because at that scale, when viewing the aircraft from a reasonable distance, canopies look dark grey. The dislike comes from how hard it is to use clear canopies and have them look good and not like a thick piece of plastic. So ultimately clear would be preferred if it was in the realms of ease, but typically is not.

Not just the canopies, the entire aircraft look well executed. I'm not a fan of clear canopies, but this is well done.

Thanks for posting, they look very good.

I don't like solid plastic canopies at all (in 1:350) and have been wondering if there was a way of making replacement clear canopy parts for suppliers that don't do them in clear - the result is so much better. I'll have to give this a go some time.

In a previous post on tips and tricks I posted that I was making my own canopies for the 1/350 USS Intrepid aircraft, I posted a pic that shows the work in progress.

Here is an update!
