    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!

    RE: Goldberg Cub Windows and cowling

    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.

    RE: Goldberg Cub Windows and cowling

    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?

    RE: Goldberg Cub Windows and cowling

    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!
