The 'no glass' cockpit doesn't look right.

I'd have incuded another cocpit with separated canopy: I suppose a clear resin one wouldn't be possible, but even a solid canopy (to be used to vacform a clear one) would have been better.

Following on from Moresby's comments, could an alternative solid canopy section with framing be created marginally undersized so that it could be used to produce a vacform canopy? The only reason I suggest this is that I know we have at least two or three members with vacforming equipment. Just a thought ... :idea:

Possible. Specify that you need it when you order. Won't be a complete solid, hollow with glass area recessed rather than see through.

Magnetic Coupler now in operation!

While designing the weights to hold the nose of the Horsa down, we came up with this device. It consists of a set of heavy and strong magnets and a shell disguised as a set of cargo crates.
Image
The magnets installed into the shell and then put on top of the seating platform without glue.
Image
Image
Image
The assembly slides into the fuselage.
Image
Image
Pins are installed into the nose and tail.
Image
The nose and tail can "stick" onto the fuselage without sticky putty or glue, and can be removed at will, while keeping the Horsa nose down.
Image

Also available as unpainted set.
Image

Great holding power!
Image

Customers who have ordered the painted versions before March will have this device installed FOC and those who ordered the unpainted versions can order these with a discounted price.

It would take buggar all time or effort to glaze that canopy with Krystal Kleer. I think it is great.
