      Art,

      Do you have another zvezda Airbus kit? If so Id reccomend attempting a resin cast. Hobby Lobby sells a smal kit and with their 40% off coupon its not too expensive.

      I have been experimenting with the process and its been fun and I think a useful skill for me. Clear is a little harder to do without bubbles but you can always use decals for your windshield. Both of my zvezda busses are partially built or Id cast one for you, sorry.

      Best of luck!

      Thanks.... I was thinking about asking someone to make a male casting of the kit part from plaster if all else fails. I could then attempt a Vacuform in my oven.
