Got any clear Monokote? That'll work for the side windows. 'Flat wrap' the windshield by sourcing the plastic from a large soda bottle and make little balsa blocks to fit inside the 'stubs where the wing joins the fuse. Cheap enough!

I've had very good luck making the side windows for cabin planes using a simple gravity forming method. It requires making both a male and female die from plywood the thickness of cabin sides. The male die is about 1/16 - 3/32 inch smaller than the female. A set of dies will work for either side of the cabin... just flip them.

I use a discarded crock put oven but the kitchen oven will work fine. Place a piece of wax paper on the oven bottom or a cookie sheet if using the kitchen oven. On it goes lays the male die. A piece of .015 polyethylene is placed on top of the die with it being cut about a half inch over size all around. The female die is placed on top of these aligning the gap equal around. On top of all this a piece of plywood and finally a weight above all.

Cover the oven and heat until the weight drives the female die down over the male to the oven bottom. I use the low heat setting on the crock pot and it takes from 15-20 minutes. Let cool and remove. Trim the inside shoulders about 1/4 inch for gluing.

The gravity process is much simpler than vacuum forming and uses far less material as a full piece of plastic is not needed.

I just built one for a friend last summer. I made all new windows myself but then found out the owner bought a new set, I think he got them through Tower? Reason I'm not sure is he also bought a really nice cowl and landing gear from Fiberglass Specialties and he may have gotten the Windows there?

I didn't want to pay the high dollars they ask for the windscreen. So I just made a block of wood that looks like the wing ends inside the cabin, and then used a sheet of paper to make the windscreen. Then I got a sheet of clear plastic at the lhs for a couple of bucks, and whala! Looks better then the one you buy, and I saved money to buy something else I wanted!
