    1/8 Scale Atlas Van Lines, need help making canopy/hatch



    I am currently building my first 1/8 scale hydro using Garry Finlay's Atlas Van Lines plans. I've built many planes in the past but this is my first boat, I've read many threads and gleanned a wealth of imformation on windowing the framing to save weight, re-enforcing critical areas, etc.... What I have not found much information on is how to make the canopy to cover the engine/electronics bay. For you experienced builders out there please share your experience, methods, pics etc.....

    Thank you in advance.

    If this is the 1977 version, you can make all the parts needed out of 1/32 plywood for skins and 1/16 ply with glue blocks added for internal framing. You can see how I did a similar cowl starting with post 13 in this thread:
