Canopy design completed

The Mk.IX canopy has been satisfactorily completed. The design differs from the early marks in that the bullet proof screen was moved inside the windscreen in order to reduce wind drag.

The sliding bubble hood mold has been designed to allow manufacture by vacuum forming.

The bullet proof glass is substituted by two layers of 2mm plexiglass with a wooden former in the shape of the original frame casting sandwiched in between.
