Noris Raketen Aggregat - 9, Part 13, The Canopy
It was molded with a flat bottom. There is no way it'll fit the nose cone curvature.
I held some 220 grit around a BT-55 and sanded the bottom.
The rubber rolled around and was pushed to the outside edges. It was still stuck to the sides and had to be scraped off.
The inset picture shows the slight arc on the bottom.
This mask was simple.
The tapered back end was painted black.
Some Fabri-tac glue was spread on the bottom of the canopy.
After being set and centered, masking tape was used to hold the ends down and form the rubber to the nose cone curvature.
