    Nice job of stripping the old paint off. What did you use?

    You may be able to salvage that canopy. Polish it with fine grades of wet/dry sandpaper to about 12000 grit, maybe even toothpaste, then dip it in some Future or equivalent.

    You should find that, if toothpaste doesn't work, then a car-body colour restorer ('T-Cut' is a UK brand name) will do the trick. Here's a couple of before and after pics of my 1/32nd scale Beaufighter canopy, when I removed a heavily-moulded frame and polished-out the scratches.

    Very good intent and result in the removal of paint, kogyro.
    Sure come out ahead with the status of your canopy; the recommendations of the colleagues will always offer possibilities of solution.

    I'll pending the development of your P-47

    Well, if it's now crushed there's no fix for that.
