    By the way, thanks also for sharing pictures of your canopy vacuforming.
    I've been meaning to try that too but my wife refused to allow me to stick plastic sheets in the oven toaster. Hehehe...
    I didn't know it was okay to use candles. Won't the candles leave a black film on the plastic? :)

    Nice, very nice. Canopy looks better then what i make.
  5. Great manual clear canopy fabrication method! I've been holding off on building more complicated aircraft (with interiors), because of the need to build a vacuforming machine to make a canopy. Your thread clearly illustrates (pun intended), that a fine canopy can be made with just a wooden mockup, a few birthday candles, and a bit of clear plastic sheet. You've inspired me!
