Default Tinting Windows & Windscreens ?

Hi Guys:

I am building a 1/3 scale L-21 Super Cub and would like to get feedback on the best method of tinting windows. The L-21 has an observation greenhouse that is tinted a yellowish green (like an old pair of sunglasses). I am using .040in. butyrate (I think, it could be acetate) I got from the hobby shop. I am aware of the "Rit dye in hot water" method, which I am not pleased with the results, and someone recommended model car tint, but can't find this shade of green. I can find plexiglas in this color, but only in .125in. Any ideas or tried and true methods?
