Default NITROPLANES Cessna 421C

I have looked high and low for a canopy for the Cessna 421 and have had no luck
My only recourse was to repair my broken canopy and make a mold for a fiberglass canopy
If anyone needs a passable canopy let me know.

Default 21 Canopy

I just got my orange Cessna 421 today and I need a canopy for it. How much for two of them just to be on the safe side? Thanks, James!

It will take about 4 days to make 2 canopies
Have you got the wood frames?
The canopy and frame are over sized so you can fit them to your fuse with cutting and sanding.
$30.00 for the canopies
$20.00 for the frames
The canopy is fiberglass and the frame is lite ply
Shipping will be extra and generally runs about 15.00

Let me know if you would like to see more detailed pictures and if you would like to place a order

Default Cessna 421 canopy

I am going to try and work with my frame so let me get just 1 canopy. I was also wondering if that it would be painted as well. Mine is the same orange and white as yours.

Default Canopy

I just now got back on here and checked the link. I was wondering if it was finished yet but I'm guessing it is. I apologize for the delay but I had not received an email from you. Please be advised that I still wish to purchase this item. If you would like you can reach me on my cell at 828-244-3222. Again I apologize but I did not receive notification it was ready. Thanks, James!

Hi sir!
Congratulations on the initiative and quality of your work! I saw that your post is from 2013, but I would like to know if it is possible to do a canopy today. What would be the estimated value of the painted canopy? Would it be possible to send to Brazil? What would be the estimated value of the most economical freight?
Thanks!

Yes I still make them but shipping will be expensive.
I charge 25.00 U.S. but will have to find out what shipping cost is
