Hello again Folks,
Trying to get ideas to what material I can use that is suitable to use as glazing for the old bird, the UVs have done the best, it has become brittle and started to crack. Any ideas are welcome, I have trawled the Web with little success.
Thanks gang.

My LMS (Gliders, Newark) sell two thicknesses of clear stuff, or try some stationery/office supplies who will stock thin clear sheeting

Vortex Vacform sell moulded canopies if that's what you need and one is for a Cub - might be the right size

Look up PETG on e-bay.

Sheets come in various thicknesses and sizes . reasonable UV stability and its suitable for vac molding as well .

Depends how big your Cub is? old CD boxes may suit the side windows?
