How would you make a canopy mold?

  1. I know this thread is old but can anyone tell me the PETG thickness used for canopies. I may give it a shot.

    Depends on the size of the plane. I did a canopy for a 30% cap out of .020 and it was a little thin so for a 30% I would go at least .030
  3. I use .035 I had bought it in 4'x 8' sheets.. if I remember correctly it cost me $60 for 3 sheets.
  4. I used .040 for the 46%'er.
  5. Thanks guys. It's for my EF 104 extra. I doinked it in a while back and I haven't had time to repair the canopy. Several cracks in the front and I don't feel comfortable trying to glue it. Plus it would be ugly. EF is out of stock so this is an option unless anyone out there has a blue canopy that they're not using....
