xx Buccaneer canopy dimensions
« Thread started on: Jan 15th, 2011, 1:24pm »

I'm building a 1/24th scale Buccaneer but I'm not convinced my drawings are precise. Can anybody tell me how long the canopy is, including the frame, and externally, how wide it is at the bottom where it meets the windscreen?

Thanks in advance - some measurements just don't seem to be readily available....

Hi Scratcher,

According to my tape the canopy is 850mm or 33.5 inches at the bottom where it meets the windscreen. For the length I laid the tape flat on the top of the canopy following the centre line curve from front to rear and this measured 2730mm or 107.5 inches.

I hope this helps.

Cheers

Thanks very much Glenn - my drawings must be close, as your measurement worked out exactly, to the millimetre.
