    Hi all.
    I am new to this forum so forgive me if this has been covered before.
    I am looking for blueprints for the canopy of Bf 109E, anything considered, good quality scans or originals.
    I saw this late canopy for sale at War Peace last week and it has spurred me on to build an exact full size replica.
    I have got the Russian drawing that shows some details (see below) but need drawings that cover dimensions and cross sections of steel frame and aluminium plexiglass channels.
    Hope someone can help, I have more detail pictures of this late frame if anyone would find them interesting.
    Regards

    Hi Charles
    They were asking 3,750 pounds sterling, but I'm not sure if it sold.
    If you look closely you can see a round makers mark stamped or etched into the plexiglass.
    I would love to see an accurate drawing of this mark.
    Regards
    Drew
