If you can find some Plink garbage disposal cleaners, the containers have nice 0.5" or so domes. I used one here:

If this is a 1/48th scale AH-1W kit it is from Italeri.

Iím fairly sure itís an Italeri kit. Itís in 1/72nd scale. If anyone has one scratched or damaged that will do as well. I donít think I can use packaging other than to heat it and remold it.

Can you not make a quick mold of the original canopy you've shown and work off of that?  At any rate, this is looking terrific!

I may have to do that. Not much model building getting anyway. Summer is busy and no time for it.

CalFire decals are on order from Draw Decals. Might take a week or two as he prints them as he gets orders. Then I can try to match the color for the larger red areas.
