For the canopy I cut the shape right out of the fuselage
once i had it together. Then I built under and around it
with apoxie sculpt, so I built the riser right into it. I formed
it today it came out pretty good! ;D

Thanks guys moving on towards the cockpit......
I formed the canopy plug in regular styrene, to
get the hood part at the front.





Don't mind the nose piece it's kind of wacked out
it needs some clay so it ends up even.

I went and gutted the bottom out it was really bothering
me, I got away from the kit and not sure why? LOL But
I want the wing to mount under the hull instead of in the
fender well like I had it. I just never had the plate recessed
far enough up in the skirt. It will allow me to work on the cockpit
much easier now as well.



I took the opportunity to lay in some matting while everything
was gutted to really strengthen the seams up.


It's pretty strong now I am holding all the weight by the fender
in this picture.

Thanks guys much appreciated again!!! ;D
I made the front hood piece permanent.......










i had a bad clear part I trimmed to test fit it fits really good...
the canopy in the last post was not trimmed for the outer
dims it was just fitted on the inside.
