New Review: Hawker Typhoon Bubbletop Canopy

Recommended Posts

Brengun Models is a scale model and detailing parts manufacturer located in the Czech Republic.  Their lines include limited production run multi-media kits and exquisitely detailed photo-etched, turned brass and white metal replacement parts for aircraft in the most commonly produced scales. 

Brengun has produced a vac-formed canopy for their Hawker Tempest kit.  My example kit (an Academy issue is a Mk V), and my research indicates it is the correct version that this particular part issue would be appropriate for.

There are no instructions, and any modeler familiar with vacuum formed canopy parts will have no issues installing this canopy in lieu of the kit part.  A close-up evaluation of the parts (see photos), indicates a simple cut and replace installation that provides a realistic scale-detailed canopy with significantly improved clarity and appearance to molded plastic kit parts.  Note that the casting contains two canopies.  One example is for a closed assembly, and the other can be used to pose the canopy in the open position.
