Default Making a new canopy for yellow f-22

Hi I just asked if someone have a spare canopy for that jet and no one has one? Hm , so I decided to make one from my damaged one so this is what I have so far.

Is that plaster of paris or are you using something else?

This is a good, little tutorial. Did you need to use a release agent?

no just spray it with car wax and use paper towel to wipe it evenly and this works perfect with the plaster

Just posted I bet that someone could use your technique before I finish the plug , I just sprayed it with a black primer to fill all the micro holes
