Spitty!

This years BoB Mess dinner display is going to rely on you!

Can you print a 1:1 Hawker Hurricane front cockpit canopy frame? I don't have a photo to hand, but its the frame that holds the armoured front glass (with the gunsight behind it).

I want to display my full real Hurricane instrument panel, attached to a sort of half a front cockpit bit, that would be able to sit on a table. With the bottom of the instrument panel where the cockpit would end IYSWIM?

I will try and get a photo of what I'm waffling on about after work this evening. But first, I wanted to know if you could print the front canopy frame or not.

Cheers shipmate.

Thanks for the reply.

Spitfire spares want £2500 for their tatty one. Unfortunately out of my price range.


Here are some photos. This is all I have. It is the front canopy section I want.

I want to mount my real instrument panel in a half round cockpit. Probably with just enough room to mount the P8 compass. The nose section just going past the front cockpit frame.

Thanks for taking a look. See Robert Stanford Tuck in his Hurricane? I managed to get his flying log book last year!
