Many of you already know I'm building a Hawker Typhoon. I wanted to put a bubble canopy on it, the Top Flite Sea Fury was the perfect scale.
Back just before Christmas I ordered it from Great Hobbies. Though it isn't listed in the catalog they said they'd try. I waited and waited and waited. Finally this week I called them and they said they couldn't get it and it was unavailable.
I called Great Planes Wednesday, the woman I spoke to said yes, it was available and the hobby shop just has to tell their supplier that it was a special order part. No extra cost, just they have to get it from a different warehouse.
So IF you have to order something not listed in the catalog make sure your local hobby shop orders it as a special part order!!
Oh and by the way, after I told the woman on the order desk I'd been waiting since before Christmas for the canopy. She sent me one (of the 30 they had in stock) FREE AND I received it Friday!!!! very kewl!!!
Gravity works. I've tested it......often!!!
