First Look

Here is an innovative solution to an old problem. How do you replicate the unique yellow-gold sealant that seals the cockpit transparencies to the frames and allows the cockpit to be pressurized? Some folks carefully mask and paint the sealant, others simply ignore the detail. Here is a great alternative: decals!

A-7D/E Canopy Frames

Furball Aero-Designs as created a decal set that will frame the transparencies in the windscreen and canopy. These are fitted to the Hasegawa kit and are perfect for both the A-7D and A-7E kits. Two complete sets are included with each set.

Thank you Furball Aero-Designs and please look at the F-4, F-14, F-15, etc., for future frames!

My sincere thanks to Furball Aero-Design for this review sample!
