Can anyone help me with a cowel for my much loved but sad looking silhouette?

I built it 20 yrs ago , and after an 18 yr layoff I have brought it back to life, but the cowel is a real mess due to a disagreement with the height of a stone wall which happened to be at the approach end of the landing strip !

its one of those models that feels like a friend when you take it flying, and I have many happy memories of it so I've completed a front end rebuild, but the cowel is beyond even my labours of love.

i'm happy to pay for one , if any one can help.

Priory used to sell the cowl as a replacement part. I don't think they have a website but they might be contactable via the tele number on the kit instructions or at one of the shows.

BTW I always thought their cowl was one of the worse examples of fibre glass mouldings around.

My very second hand cowl from my Ssihoutte (sadly no more) has found a new lease of lifo on my scaled up Mini Jazz..


You still see them trading at shows and the like, but no WWW presence.

Icey, Priory Models are mentioned on this webpage. No idea how old the information is, but there is a phone number.
