The next challenge I'm faced with is the cockpit and canopy itself. I've already vacuum formed several canopies from 0.75mm thermo plastic, maybe 'pet' but can't quite recall. It's ok, but does have a slight ripple. For the finished Concours d'Elegance I'll use finest crystal clear 1.25mm PET. I'll scribe the canopy mould to build a template of sorts to transcribe into CAD (Fusion 360) the aluminium canopy frames and then lasercut a cardboard prototype. In fact I've already done this, and just need a few nips and tucks here and there to make it all fit!
