OK, special work today: the glasses of the cockpit!

First, after having measured the glasses needed I drawed them on a sheet of paper, as a template; tried the fitting; made some corrections then placed a thin clear plastic sheet on top of the template and with a cutter, I made the glasses.
There were glued with cyano into the cockpit. Then, I placed maskol on the outside and with a paintbrush, covered the parts that have no need to remain transparent with Vallejo Basalt Grey.
Then, the cockpit was glued with cyano...

Yes, this is great! Individual segments of glass make for tedious but beautiful results.

Thank you!

As I will not use the decals for the red bands, I have masked the Snow Speeder before to airbrush...
