How to make cowling ?

Hi all, trying to get some advice how to make cowling for my plane. I made the mold out of plaster. That part looks good. I tried few tips such as heat up a sheet cut out of coke bottle and pull it over it. That didn't work. I bought plastic sheet that is little thinner then coke bottle and no luck there.
I know I have the option make it out of fiberglass but weight is concern. Any tips or ideas on how to make it work with the plastic and heath ? So far I ruined about 2 pounds of plastic which ended up in nice heath deformed chunks of plastic with few
holes in it I would actually like to buy it but Wattage said it is not available and won't be until end of July. I also know that I can fly without it (suggestion of hobby store that sells the plane) but I would rather have it on the plane to keep dirt out of the motor and gear box.
