New P-47D Thunderbolt “Bubbletop” vacuformed canopies are available from Brengun for the 1/144th scale Platz/Eduard kit.

There are two (2) canopies in the package. There are no instructions, but the product is self-explanatory.

The clear vacuformed plastic is thin and has very good clarity with very little distortion when looking through it.

Upon closer inspection of the canopies, there is a difference in the moldings. One is for an open canopy since there is a space gap between the windscreen and canopy. The other has no space thus making it a closed canopy installation.

Care must be taken when dealing with vacuformed parts. A new blade in your hobby knife will be a must when trimming away the canopy from the rest of the plastic. Light sanding will also be needed to smooth the rough edges.

This is great vacuform canopy set from Brengun to improve your 1/144th scale P-47D Thunderbolt Bubbletop. The thickness is closer to scale with plenty of clarity.

I want to thank Brengun for providing the vacuform canopy set and IPMS/USA for allowing me the opportunity to review.

Highly Recommend to those who build in this scale!
