Default 16-17 inch T-28 Canopy

I am searching for a 16-17 inch long T-28 style canopy. The airplane is a 65 inch W/Span Dave Platt kit from the 1970,s and the glue let go in flight, lost the canopy, nowhere to be found. It is much easirer for me to find one, too lazy to form it myself. Does anyone manufacture this style canopy,it doesnt need to be exact copy but decenttly close. Thanks...Joe

T-28 Canopy, needs to be 16-17 inches long.

You might consider making the front windshield from a flat piece and the remainder from one or two separate bubble canopies?

My LHS stocks spare canopies for most ARFs they sell, and Ive been successful at making canopies that way.
You just need to make ply arcs for where the different pieces join.

Regarding a 17 inch T-28 canopy, I checked Park Plastics, emailed them twice, phoned twice, no reply. Are they shut down due to this virus frenzy? Just trying to find another to modify as EF suggested.
