Hello Aviators,

I have a question I'm hoping the vast pool of KMN knowledge will be able to help answer for me.

I'm looking for a mask for my kit's canopy. I cannot for the life of me find an "A-1J" version but there are lots of "A-1H" masks.

Is the canopy the same between the two kits? I know this kit I have (61073) has new parts from the original tooling (61058 A-1H) but not sure if the "new parts" include the canopy.

Thanks VERY much!

The kits seem to use the exact same canopy sprue.
