    Hi, I just got a 1:33 GPM Mitsubishi G4M2 'Betty' bomber and Yokosuka MXY7 'Okha' suicide plane. I really need to know how to make clear canopies for them! Any help on how to make them?

    If I had to, I'd build the canopy first, then make an equivalent shaped block of wood or modeling clay, and use it as a "buck" to vacuform a sheet of clear thermoplastic. Does that make sense to you?

    Yes, that does make sense, But can't I also just get clear plastic, glue the canopy on top, and cut it out?

    Maybe overhead projector transparency sheets would work?
