After a lot of nudging and moving verts around I think I’m finally in a good spot for this winter canopy. It was quite the challenge to get the basics right when you are working off 3 photos of the (correct) canopy mounted and 2 photos of it in parts on the floor without any factory drawings for basic measurements or mounting points.
The windscreen in particular has got quite a bit of challenging angles behind the struts which were fun.
There are still details missing on it like the locking mechanisms etc. which I’ll model next.
Additionally to the winter hood I’ve also modelled in two additional intakes in the exhaust shrouds that function to draw in hot air to heat the cockpit by taking in air directly behind the cylinder head.
After finishing the canopy I’ll add a plug to the bottom of the cowling for the starter and one or two tiny details and then it’s finished in terms of modelling.
