Canopy
 
Hello. I am finish a new proyect, Avenger (aerofred plans). I want to know how I can glue a canopy without a tab. I'll stick the back to the backrest, but the rest, that's the bottom, it's flat. I'm sending you photos for a better view. Thank you in advanc

make an insert that fits the inside of the canopy,AND,the curve of the cockpit,out of ply or laminates of veneer,then hollow the insert to about 1/4 " wall.Glue and fasten the insert to the body.Paint the insert,then glue the canopy to it

I'd just tape it off and paint it to create a faux 1/4" frame all the way around and use RC56 to glue it down,,, should be just fine
