Canopy for Staudacher S300 3.2
Please help, I have damaged the Canopy of my Staudacher S300 3.2. 100CC
I have most of the canopy intact. What can i do to make a mold? Is there a way to make a mold and a clear canopy? Please help me with any info you can give me.

I bet you can probably find something similar from another plane- creating a mold and pulling a single canopy will be expensing and time consuming.

What brand Staudacher do you have?

Thanks for responding sir.
It's a Lanier kit, built by someone I don't know. Staudacher S300 canopies are little narrower than most Extras out there so I'm really not sure which ones would be similar.

I suspect that a canopy from a similar sized Extra 260- or a cut down canopy from an Extra 300- could probably be made to fit. Here aer some potentials:

I suspect that you could adapt a similar sized Extra 260 canopy to fit - like
