Aros,

I used a Hangar 9 canopy, shape is good for the ESM corsair :

But less thick than the ESM (0.53 mm for the ESM, 0,43mm for the hangar 9)

WOW Fred ! That's a super duper looking canopy!! I have a H9 canopy on hand for my Corsair, and I want it to look just like yours. Can you please tell me how you made that ?

I suppose the aft part is litho-plate (?), and what size are the screws ?

Thanks, V.

Vasek,
Detail of canopy making here:
ESM 50cc Corsair

First step is to cut the H9 canopy at the good place to have in one hand the windshield and in the other hand the sliding part.
Then I have done a template with paper to have the outline of the frames.
For the windshield, I have rolled the sheet ( 0.5mm aluminium sheet),stretching it at the base of the windshield to fit it good with the fuselage (stretching with a hammer and a forming tool),
I have adjusted it to the fuselage until it fit well with the original H9 sliding canopy.
And after, I have cutted out the parts to be removed, and do the holes for screw.
For the inner skin, I rolled an other sheet, and I have traced the cuts to make from the first parts.
The same process was used for the sliding canopy, but I had rolled the pieces after they had been cutted out. Sliding canopy is made with four parts ( 2 for the inner skin, 2 for the outer skin).
The Screw are M 1.4 ones. No litho plates, just a lot of working hours,
Another advice: buy a big sheet, because maybe you'll have to redo the same parts two or three times... ;-)

Fred, seeing the cars in your shop, I can see where your skills come from... I can admire your work, but in no way I,m able do replicate that.

By the way I love the way you modded the H9 tailwheel . I have one of those also and am scratching my head how to mount it in the Black Horse Corsair (it is mounted in funny angles in the H9 Corsair, from what I can make out from the manual

Cheers, V.

Fred I echo vasek's comments completely. That is truly fantastic and exactly what I am looking for but alas, I don't even come into the same solar system as you with your skills. Would you ever consider doing one for me if I paid you in time, labor and material?

I had to ask.

I would have really been very happy and very proud to make a canopy for you but I'm running out of time !
But....
If you really want one, I can send you the templates, and follow you step by step, during the time of construction, to give you advices.
I'm sure that with time everyone can do it !

Excellent repairs!

Painted the upgrade canopy Tamiya Navy Blue. Turned out pretty good. Need to add rivets and additional scale details (rear view mirrors, etc) but I might just be able to roll with this canopy.

Default Visserie

Bonjour je me permet de revenir vers vous, concernant la visserie de votre verrière qui est juste magnifique.


Avec toutes les références de vis , difficile de trouver les mêmes vis et boulots que vous. Est il possible d’avoir la référence de vos vis et boulons de votre verrière via la dite ou le liens direct ?
