I like the idea but I tried cutting the paper copy out and was having a heck of a time with the horse shoe part of the canopy. I was either cutting too thick or too thin leaving paper exposed or not looking consistent. I am going to try this with a twist. Think back to the days in school when teachers used the clear transparencies on an overhead projector. I am going to take some of my old unused transparency sheets and just photocopy this canopy directly onto the plastic sheet. This will give a coloured outline on the inside as well as the outside. I haven't tried this yet but I am about to and will give an update.
Happy flying!
