HELP: Su-27 / 35 Canopy

Hello,
Picked up a copy of the Berkut Su-35 in 1/72. Its pretty primitive -
but i am persisting with it anyway.
the one area that has got me stumped is the canopy. Ive tried
plug-forming a replacement, to no avail. The one supplied with the kit
is just totally the wrong shape.
Has any one got an accurate, spare Su-27 or Su-35 canopy sitting around?
or is there anyone out there that can plug-form a replacement for me?
please help :(
David.

You're converting a 1:72 scale Su-27 into a Su-34 ??
What for - when there is the Italeri/Revell(and now Tamiya) kit of the Su-34 ?
Puzzled.
As for David's request - the only vacform Flanker canopy that I know of is the Su-27UB one from Aeroclub - there aren't any available for Su-27's or Su-35's.
Don't for get that the Su-35 windscreen has an offset IRST ball - the ball on the Su-27 is centrally mounted.
Finally - why go with the Berkut (aka Nakotne/Encore/Eagle) kit of the Su-35 - it isn't very accurate. I always use the Airfix kit - it's a crap kit - but at least IMHO, it is an accurate model from which to start conversion to a Su-35 - see my articles on Linden Hill's website at :-
