Super Mystere Canopy
Designed for the AZ Models kit
  • move

by: Tim Hatton [ LITESPEED ]

Contents

The one piece vac formed canopy is contained in a resealable transparent plastic bag. This is a beautifully clear and thin replacement for the one piece canopy from the kit. The canopy is formed in the closed position and does not have the slight gap of excess plastic that you normally see on Pavla canopies. I do prefer the closed canopies as the plastic is so clear. There is no need to open up the canopy to see all the cockpit detail. The framework is well defined, the shape looks excellent and the plastic feels robust. You do need to cut the canopy away from the excess plastic, just take your time and use a new scalpel blade.

Conclusions

This is a great looking canopy and particularly worthwhile acquiring because of the fine looking photo etched and resin detail cockpit detail that is included with the kit. Nice one Pavla Models.
SUMMARY
Highs: Very good looking canopy, nice and thin, but not to delicate.
Lows: Great care needed if you really need to separate canopy from windscreen.
Verdict: Highly recommended if you want a crystal clear canopy for the AZ Models Super Mystere.
