Hello…….thanks guy for the kind comments…….I really do appreciate them……..on the way to the NNL West show yesterday……..Art Laski,Paul Cadwell and I stopped at a Hobby shop in Gilroy……and I picked up this giant canopy used for a huge airplane…….and I really think I can make it work for my Garlit`s body……..I will have to modify it …….but,I think it will work?……..If it does`nt  then I will have to go back to the drawing board…….But,I have confidence in myself………thanks for looking.

Very clever use of an airplane canopy. Would be cool to have another that you kept clear to see all your detail but I'm sure your body will be removable.

The only bad part about using that clear canopy is that it doesn't show up very well in the pics. Kinda reminds me of the old Wonder Woman invisible jet when the show was on TV when I was a kid. LOL

I’m fairly sure, the body finally will be painted.

Looks like you're making it work! I could see the wheels in your head turning when you picked up that body. Build is looking great and will be fun to watch!
