    Thanks guys, for the encouragement and feedback. It really helps!
    Tonights last bits before the dread halloween party our family has to attend, are fitting the canopy to the frames. I made a 3rd template and placed it over the vacuformed glass. I cut the plastic a tiny bit shorter than the rails so the rails have a paper to paper glueing surface. I then glued the rails and frames to the canopy, trimmed it up to fit and viola' clear glass. (except one or 2 smudeges that almost always plague me!). Thats all for tonight, almost done.....

    Smudges? Can't see any, she came out great!
    I like the way the HUD came out too.

    Cheers!

    Finished! Finally!

    Well 1st one of the season. Watched my wife's home team get trounched, and finished while watching! Not a very safe place to be man or model! Despite the "distractions", ended up with a whole F-20 complete with a nifty stand that came with it. It was photographed on our kitchen floor, the neat tiles kinda make a cool backdrop.
