I didn't make a very job of cutting the engine cowl on my Uno Wot, and now it's started to crack in places looking generally tatty. I'd like to replace it and do a better job this time.

Anyone know where I can I get a replacement? Carbon Copy do one for £15, but that seems a bit steep to me.

You could try Mr Foss himself.

I repaired mine to use as a mould to make a new one, cheap because i had the stuff. When i enquired, CF wanted £16 for his and do bear in mind that the Carbon Copy one is fibreglass not ABS like the original, so is better value.

Sorry DF but I think you are being a bit unrealistic to expect a ready made product for less than 15 quid. I can't believe Mr Foss could supply one for less including postage. As Andrew767 says if you have the kit in stock to make one yourself may be it will fall within in your price limitations, otherwise you will have bite the bullet.

Pegasus Models have fibreglass Wot4 Mk 3 cowls at £9.50. No idea if they'll fit an Uno Wot though........

Can't be too difficult to make one from blocks of balsa surely?

As an example, here's a cowl from balsa......

Peter Miller is surely the el supremo of the built up balsa cowl, but hopefully I'm not too far behind.......
