Acrylic

The Acrylic plastic isn't the best idea, Very hard to glue. I found GOOP will hold itt, but it's so stringie that I got glue on the plastic. Not the best look. Anyway the silicon didn't hold it so I used plumbers putty to act as clips to hole the side panes in. The fron I may do over. For now they will do

How about cutting the windows out of a clear soda bottle. cheap easy to cut and with a little bit of heat from your heat gun it will mold around things pretty well.

What worked well for me was to make a light posterboard template that wrapped around
the top of the windscreen opening and conformed to the cowl, not touching the braces. Plastic was cut per template and secured at its perimeter.
I used very small T pins to hold it in position and used very small dabs of epoxy on a tooth pick to spot glue it.
The resulting pin holes received a speck of epoxy and looked like rivits. FWIW. art

Bad windows

So you all agree I should kick the windows out of the front and try again.

Onl if the current job bothers you. Step back 5 feet and u probably won't notice any flaws.

On my Fokker I'm kinda leaning against doing lozenge camo on the wings. I'll just be flying it for fun at my local field...I don't need it to be 100% scale. I'm tempted to whip up a color scheme of my own.

Design your own

Texas. I would design your own. Your not going to enter it any contest are you? Then build the plane to please yourself. All the things I changed on this plane because you guys offered another suggestion was ONLY because I thought them to be a better solution, but in the end, it's you plane and design a nice color scheme that you'll be proud of. I Used Clancy's design scheme only because I wanted a Lazy Bee that looked like one. I should dig out a photo of my Speedy Bee that I designed to look like a P51. Lets see what your designing, I would love to be involved. Do it for yourself.

What is your name?

I'm Dylon

The Lazy Bee is an excellent candidate for clear Monokote windows all around. each piece remains flat and makes it super simple.
