    Thats a good tip - I need some Lexan for a Swordsman wrap-around screen, so I will look for the UV resistant quality. ๐Ÿ‘

    I always make templates in cardboard to get shapes right. I also use plastic thin sheets. Even thin brass cut with scissors. Cleverly done to simulate what I will actually use fir template.

    Take a look at some PetG plastic sheet. It comes in various thicknesses, is perfectly clear and glossy and very easy to work with. (It's heat mouldable too!) Ebay has many suppliers of this stuff!

    I have used it with great success on my models for vac formed windows..
