Hi all, i need some help with a Revell 1:48 F-117a i'm building. I have lost the clear sprue, either it wasn't in the kit or its gone in one of my moves...

Anyway i really want to get this done, Revell have got back to me on a replacement item, the say its a "cull" item i.e. not in production and such they won't be sending a replacement.

So does anybody have either a F-117 canopy i can copy ...i.e. make a vac form mold blank from. or be prepared to do some measurements for me?? its all straight lines so i can probably build one.

I cannot find a vac form or aftermarket canopy anywhere - only 1:72 and weirdly 1:32???? wtf??

Thanks guys!

Will a Tamiya 1/48 canopy do?

Just like to say a public thank you to Grant for his generosity. The fit is not too bad just needs a bit of surgery.
This is a great community of modelers the support both through encouragement and help for parts is amazing , i have spares and I am also happy to help!

Thank you grant!
