Default Top Flite Bearcat

I recently acquired a Bearcat kit with a carbon fiber fuse and foam core wings that was based off of the Top Flite kit but it does not have a canopy. Does anyone know where I can find a canopy or does anyone have one they would like to part with or does anyone have the kit they would like to sell for a reasonable price?

Not for this kit. Already checked with them. It has been discontinued too long.

Check with Hobby Barn in Arizona. The canopy from the Marutaka/Royal F8F kit might fit.

Kirk.

WOW!! where did you get that fuselage!!
Are there any more available??
Any info would be great.
I 'm going to start a Bearcat this winter .
I would really like to use the Topflight size rather than go to the bigger Ziroli.

Scott:

I received the fuse from a friend. He purchased it a few years ago and never built the plane. I would perfer to build the Ziroli Bearcat. If you are interested in the carbon fiber fuse and foam cores, email me and maybe we can work a trade.

Default Topflite F8F Canopy

Ksonn,

I have a plaster plug of that canopy. I could send it to you.
You'll have to Vacuum form it.

I receieved the plug from an RCAIRPORT friend and have since replaced my beat up canopy with a vacu formed one from the plug

Let me know, I'm glad to help.
