Question
Parkzone Fw-190 canopy length / Availability of Fw-190 clear canopies

I'm building an EPP Ta-152 and am trying to find a suitable off-the-shelf clear canopy. I'm down in Australia, so such things are pretty thin on the ground. I see a couple of places here sell replacement canopies for the Parkzone Fw-190 though, so I was wondering if anyone could tell me how big it is front to back. Based on my current scale, I'm looking for something about 10 inches. Based on quoted specs of the Parkzone bird it should be close, but I suspect it may be a little undersized. Can someone who has one on-hand whip out a tape measure and measure it for me?

If anyone has alternative suggestions for a suitable canopy (other than making one), please post them. I'm not looking for super scale accuracy, just something that is close enough.

Cheers.

I don't have a measurement...but I'm pretty certain it's not that big.. Hopefully someone will chime in here shortly for you.

Ah, an inch too short. Thanks flyin C.

I may be able to knock the scale down to match that if I can't find an alternative canopy. Anyone know of a 190 canopy around 10"?
