    Can someone help ? I need to replace the clear sprue canopy for the 1/72 Slave 1 finemolds model. I tried e-mailing finemolds to ask them for a replacement piece but no luck at all. I've also tried other sources and attempted to make the canopy myself I will pay for who ever makes this clear piece for me.

    Contact hlj, I read some people were able to get replacement parts for FM kits this way.

    Out of production would be my guess.

    I'm sure I've seen someone casting a clear part to replace a damaged canopy.... try searching here for any builds, I can't remember who it was.

    I might have seen it at SFM or SMA.... I'll let you know if I spot it again. :)

    PM sent regarding a guy who helped me out with a FM part before. Beware, it's retail.

    Yes thank you guys. I 've been wanting to continue and finish this model for a while . as long as I get the part to fit right its all good. BTW I emailed HJL again to see if they can help this time around and still no reply yet.
