Next up, the canopy frame. All the pieces are laid out in the nice cleaned up workspace in the first picture.

Pictures two and three show some interesting pieces that had to be cut out. The first one is heavy stock, .063 if I remember, pressed into the correct curve for the frame sides. The second piece utilizes only the outer edges and a small piece at the rear. The large center section is scrap. A really nice big piece of scrap. I’ve already used some of it for other things.

The last picture shows the two hinge pieces that connect the frame to the fuselage.
