    Hello all,

    Would anyone happen to know where I could get a replacement canopy for this kit? The one that came with the kit cracked off the sprue and I tried to strip some paint off and it went terrible. The model is 99% done except for the canopy and I want to get it completed. I tried some internet searches but nothing came up.

    Have you tried contacting Revell? A few years ago I had a screwed up decal sheet for an F-84 and they replaced it free of charge. Good customer service means return business.

    Go to this web site Revell - The Authentic Model-Building Experience since 1945

    Find the 'Parts and Support' button, click on it, complete the details requested and submit. You'll need the kit name, number, scale, part number and description, and what the problem is.
    You'll receive a reference number, and an e-mail confirming your request.

    Did the revell request with a nice "I've been buying revell kits for years and always look towards your company first for my purchases". Hopefully that seals the deal lol. Thanks guys and I might get some pictures up when the old thing's finished!

    Yep, a good old BBB often works wonders! (BBB = Bullsh*t Baffles Brains).
