I had carved a X-15 style canopy to make vacu-form canopies. This prototype build will get the only molded canopy I made.
Fitting the canopy to a nose cone took quite a while. It was more complicated than simply sanding around a body tube curve.
Why clear plastic? It's what I had on hand.
Medium CA glue was used to glue the canopy to the filled nose cone.
I kept a Q-tip handy to pick up any excess glue.
