The composite mold for a fibreglass frame of canopy is done. Probably Ill be able also to use this form for vacuum canopy.

I bet that's how Vic does it (and most certainly ESM do not!)

Hi Rumen, I would like to wacoom the canopy on my negative mold. I found some pictures how to do it. In this case I would need only one mold for fibreglass frame and wacoom canopy. But as you sure now, anytime everything goes as we want or await.

Fokke, I think your result looks good. Did you also use negative mold? I cant see any hole for air.

No I"am not yet. I wonder how will work the negative sistem with so small holes for air. I do not make yet this idea, but soon I will try for sure

Maybe 1mm holes will be ok ?

Unfortunately I dont know it. But the canopy from Traplet shop which Ive already had is made from 0,2; 0,3 mm or some similar. It is not more than 0,5 mm. But it looks like, that this one is made on positive mold.

If your model is 1/5 scale or up nothing under 0.5mm I think ! I made my canopies from 0.5mm material and is OK , but if is more thinner I think is bad idea

I found some time and started to build elevator. If I should follow the plan, I had to made it from 2mm balsa. Im going to cover it by fibreglass, so I made it from 1,5mm balsa wood.

Molds for Spitfires and Bf-109s dummy exhausts are done. Ive also made a mold for dummy cal. 0.50. Now I can provide dummy exhausts 1/5 scale, the cal. 0.50 is approximately 1/7 scale- suitable for ESM Dauntless.
