Mel Chandler wanted to start a new topic:

I have a new topic.  I broke off a corner of my windscreen and rather than spend $1,000 for a new one, I would like to make a new one.  Has anyone done this in the shape of the usual windscreen?  Has anyone made a three piece custom screen?

The early 701 plans called for a thinner windscreen that was riveted to the forward cabin frame tubes. Also look at Mark Philip’s 701, he ventured far from the plans to create a beautifully unique aircraft. 


Yes, I like the Mark Phillips version.  Several options are open at the start of summer.  For now, I will glue the chunk back in place, cover the upper 6” of the  entire windscreen with vinyl or aluminum and maybe during colder times, build a new system.  I was hoping to get started on Jon Croke’s Affordaplane so my shop is busy.  Waaahh.
