Super Tucano canopy

Super Tucano canopyI finished texturing and unfolding my Super Tucano.

I decided to start building the canopy. Roberto Falorni wrote an amazing tutorial to create transparent canopies – Low tech canopy theraforming.

Thank you Roberto for your tutorial and allowing me to publish it here!

According to tutorial steps,

  1. Assemble the canopy parts, tabs outside

  5. I didn’t find a pet that fits my mold, so I decided to create 3 separate parts
