The Nose and Cockpit Canopies


The pictures below are of the latest cockpit canopy, which is now available with the panel frames formed in the plastic.  We are showing two ways to mask and paint the frames.  The cockpit glass here has been taped to expose the area to be painted.

These next pictures are of the latest nose canopy, which is now available with the panel frames formed in the plastic.  Here, the nose glass was first  taped to hide the area to be painted.  Then, several coats of Liquid mask was applied.  Afterwards, the edges of the tape was scored with a razor, and the tape was carefully removed.
