Сanopy is molded in transparent resin.
In the last photo comparison with polystyrene canopy on the model F-16D Hasegawa.

Really clear, it is a great work!
I don't love vacuformed canopies. It would be good to have resin canopies for those plastic kits that have poor ones, many old Amodel kits for example. Maybe pieces as the turrets, that can fit well to many types of planes.

Thank you, Massimo!
Good idea, but the canopy of transparent resin in the manufacture of a very time-consuming. And they are much more difficult to cast. At the same time, to sell them, they have to be cheap.
