It's done! The canopy came out better than expected. CG is perfect, and it's all set for a maiden flight - as soon as I feel as though I can handle it. Maybe a buddy box flight with someone with a lot better flying skills than I currently have wouldn't be a bad idea.

It's been a fun project, that's for sure!

An ordered tube of special cement for Lexan showed up today. Time to start gluing together the canopy sections.

Front part is done, glued and trimmed out with striping tape. "Captain Eddy TuLowe" is finding out that the cockpit is a snug fit.

The graphics are courtesy of my wife's crafting machine, which does a very nice job cutting them out on MonoKote trim sheet from a computer file (she does my AMA numbers for the wing as well).

I still have to cut out and glue the rear half of the canopy, then use some canopy glue to hold it to the fuselage.
