I have a Tsukuda 1/72 sky raider the forward canopy broke in half. I found one for a A1-J for Airfix models wondering what differences are between the H and J model canopy or if anyone knows where I might find one.
From what I can tell, the canopies are the same between the two. The front windscreen is a simple three-piece. It should be ok.
The main tell tale difference between the H and J were the tail wheels. The H having a solid rubber tire for carrier landings, the J had a more conventional inflatable.
I think a lot of J’s began life as Navy H models. When the US Navy began to phase them out in favour of A-7’s, the USAF and VNAF snapped them up. A lot of the alterations were internal. Mostly rewiring for the huge arsenal of weapons they could carry!
Thanks for the info!
Happy to help.
Let us know how you get on.
Is it a vac canopy you’re using?
