|The Wheelhouse bulkheads have been cut and glued into position, and the window openings have been cut, filed and sanded square. It´s now time to manufacture the windows themselves.|
I decided to use clear, Lexan® material for the windows for a couple of reasons:
I used clear, Lexan® sheet material 1/8" thick that I purchased from the local Home Depot store. It came with a protective film on both sides and was easily cut with my power miter saw.
|They are hard to see in these four (4) photos, but the windows have all been cut to shape and popped into the openings. They will be removed later when its time to prime/paint the structure, and then permanently glued into position.|
|I used my Dremel® tool to cut the openings in the Wheelhouse ceiling both forward and aft.|
|These openings allow sunlight to shine through the upper, tinted windows above the Wheelhouse.|
