Passer X canopy


Hi everyone,
I have a passer X electric glider and lost the canopy.
I googled it and can't find any replacement for it.
If anyone knows a website where to buy or have one to sell, I'll greatly appreciate it!
Thanks,
David

FWIW, there's two versions of the Passer with different fuselage/canopy. The first version's canopy was larger and fits only one way. The newer one's (revised just before R2hobbies shut down) canopy is smaller and fits both ways.
I've got a canopy, but not extra, sorry.

I need one too.

I made a buck ( form ) to create one from a sheet of plastic but my material severely malformed.

Epic fail....

I will go to the plastic store near to ask what to do. That is eplastic.com, btw.

My back up is to make one out of balsa old school and maybe later use that as a form to create a glassed one.

A lot of work for such a smple item....

I have an extra canopy for a Speedo,...

....which might fit.

I also have successfully cut several canopies from plastic bottles, like the attached Herbal Essences bottle.

I just emailed Skipp Miller Models from whom I got it.
I know they no longer sell it but might know where to get spare parts.
Thanks for you replies,
David

I don't have good pics, but here's the newest version that R2 sold... note the canopy is fairly pointy. The older one's ends were way more blunt.
