The canopy needs to be sanded flat before skinning.
Use a scrap piece of 3mm depron that is larger than it needs to be.
Bend the depron to shape. Protect the back with tape if necessary.
Measure the length needed. I just eyeballed it and used a toothpick to mark where it needs to be cut.
Cut the piece to length and test fit once more before gluing.
After gluing trim the excess foam and sand the edges to get a rounded effect. Hotglue can't really be sanded so carefully trim away any excess glue with a sharp x-acto knife.
Repeat the process with the rest of the fuse.
Here's what she looks like so far. Now it's time to think of color schemes.
