Another red-neck idea of mine, possibly applicable to 1/2A profile flying models.

This piece came out of a computer-related part from work, for decommission/break-down. I looked at it as a "sprue" of several (16 actually..) profile-canopies that could be cut-out, sanded and glued atop the cockpit area of a small profile model. The width of a single "frame" is 5/32" with a thickness of just over 1/8".. a height of 7/8"" and length is 2.75".. which would fit nicely on fuse's as thin as 3/16". I have six sprues.. for a total of 96 possible canopies Laughing

Side-screens could be made from thin clear plastic sheet; cut with scissors to match the contour.. with this part serving as the main-frame. If anyone wants to try one, let me know.. as I'll surely never use all that I have. It might just be the "added-touch" that makes your little model look a lot more scale-like!
