FT Spitfire Canopy
First, download the plans and cut them out. On the turtle deck, I would cut it larger to custom fit and trim after done gluing as shown by the dotted lines.
You can also leave the rounded edges longer to custom trim them, but they should be close to the cut pieces of the built plane. You can fold that temp it in place to check.
The base is glued with a B fold. Sides next to the bottom. The middle form should glue in roughly the middle.
You can use the side ribs for checking the placement of the middle form. Then glue in the front and rear side ribs.
At this point I would dry fit the turtle deck so you can see how it will lay over the form.
What I first glued was the top/middle part of the turtle deck ONLY, folding over the sides to get good alignment on the ribs. It should cover the ribs completely but ONLY GLUE the top of the middle former!
. . . Because, I found in better to then fold up the rear and front and glue them to the top of the middle former. Then glue the front and rear sides in place. If you left them a bit long, as shown in the plans with dotted lines, don't worry, you can cut off all the edges when finished.
Then glue the middle side over. You can have the front and the middle meet up flush, the middle and the rear, the middle should over lap the rear.
The final product. I can't wait to minwax and paint mine!
This is my first time trying to post custom plans, forgive me if I've missed something.
I had to save it to my computer and then open it with Windows Photo Viewer. I clicked Print. Then made papersize "Letter" and checked the box "Fit picture to frame"
Also, make sure its printing in Portrait
