Making vac canopy parts is relatively low tech and if there are bucks ready-made, pretty easy to do. I did my first vacforming using a cardboard box for the 'table', a shop-vac for the suction, some MDF for the plastic holding frames and the kitchen oven for heating... with a couple of bricks to prop the MDF frames on while heating. Worked right decently, with a little practice...
These days, I have a table top vac former (all in one unit used by dentists) obtained through MicroMark, which works great for doing canopies. So I'd vote for having bucks too.
One question, are you adding the ribbing detail on the engine "cans"?
I got a pretty nice frame system from a guy on Etsy. I clamp it in, heat in the oven, then use the hoover for suction. It works quite nicely. I do want to get one of those dental ones though.
The bucks will definitely be included and I will most likely include a printable canopy file for those that want to go that route.
I will be adding the ribbing as part of the ‘super-detailing’ as my friend likes to call it! Plenty of engine details to add I am currently working on the interior parts for the nose gunner and cockpit. Had a busy week on an away job so haven’t had much to post. Now I’m home for the weekend I can get the nose gunner position finished and share the photos!
