The canopy looks to me to be more suited to the F-16 but it's your design. It'll look great either way.
Thanks for replying. I thought the same. Was hoping to get some input on this last week before painting them on but it seems that this thread has lost its mojo.

I went with the F-16 canopy.

Fuse Plug #2.1-3


We got canopy lines (figure 1)!



The canopy lines technique was pretty simple. First, I used green electrical tape to draw out the basic shape (figure 2). Then, I used a pencil to trace around the INSIDE of the tape (figure 3).



This was in case the tape moved and had to be reapplied. Next, I applied the red electrical tape INSIDE the green and subsequently removed the green (figure 4).

Fuse Plug #2.1-3

It's like glass!

Nothing much to this update; just lots of picture and lots of sanding. Started with 400grit -> 800 -> 1000 -> 2000. Would of went higher but that's all the paint store had. Imagine what it will look like after about 4 coats of wax [8D].



What's Next?
1. Machine the Fuse Right Side -Check
2. Machine Both Sides of Canopy -Check
3. Epoxy soak CNC'd parts -Check
4. Join fuse and canopy halves -Check
5. Spray light coat of primer and make small repairs -Check
6. Make Canopy Lines -Check
6. Make mold

So, with nearly another year and a half gone by, how's the Modkat coming? Yes, I do still think about it!

So with no response, is one to assume this project is dead in the water?
