Default Showtime 90 canopy

I need to replace a canopy for a showtime 90. the last time I flew it something fell on it on the ground and crushed the canopy! Last time I flew it was probably a few years ago. I have been temporarily out of the hobby but looking to knock the dust off and get back out there. I looked around and I found the wood panel for the canopy but cannot find the actual canopy itself. Any one have an idea 1. Where I can get one? 2. What else would work? 3. If not what is the best way to mend a cracked up canpoy?

Thanks
Scott

Maybe one of the real builder guys can make a new canopy, its a fair size and not easily done, checked ebay?

This is approx 24" from front of hatch to rear edge of canopy. The magnets are gone some repairs would be needed but the canopy is in good shape.

I am going to run out and measure mine right after work. If it works out i have the canopy of a 50 i bought on ebay not paying attention to size. Ill gladly send that your way for the 50 so you dont run into this problem in a year! I just saw my buddy who owned the "something" that fell on my canopy so he will be almost as happy as me if i can find a replacement.

Sounds like that is the one, its 6" across in the front. its 22' across the bottom so 24 would sounds perfect with the actual canopy on it.

This is the exact canopy I bought off of ebay if you want it since it will work for your 50:

I wish someone would start making parts for the showtime 90, a good flying plane, sucks when you break something not wood.
