Cutting windshield and window holes

Used jigsaw to cut windshield and window holes out of top fuselage.  Sanded edges straight, filed contours of corners.  Used router to remove inner skin and foam around window opening to make a flange for bonding the plexiglas.

Plexiglas windshield was trimmed to fit with bandsaw.  Iterative process due to compound curvature.
