Hello !
I would to make the bulletproof canopy, but I have no idea to do that.
Anybody have already do this, an idea ?
I think I can let the initial part for the canopy, just to add something to do the whole canopy.
Thanks. :wink:

I suggest using a piece like this: http://www.bricklink...Pic.asp?P=x1477
It might work, but that's the only piece I know, that looks like it. Hope it helps

There is no obvious part in the LEGO library for this that I know of. The Half Sphere Canopy comes close, but is way too deep for the proportions to hold (unless you hide most of it)

You might also get a good result using this, but I recommend taking a look at how Ralph S has handled the problems of canopies for his many air crafts. His Brickshelf gallery is here.

Note:
I add this part Posted Image on the car just to take the windscreen.

Now the problem is to hide the parties on the sides. I think to this: Posted Image

It's a good start, so far.

Have you tried removing the original windscreen and only use the trans dark canopy? I think it might look better. And use the Posted Image on the sides to close it.
And maybe if you could use some white pieces to attach the canopy at the back of the car to give it a more streamline look.
Someday, the whole Universe shall bow before my genius... or at least the cat... maybe...

And on for my Brickshelf gallery...

Yes, like yellost said, use Posted Image to cover the sides and take out the original windshield. That is what I was saying in the first place. Put the "brick" part of the trans-smoke windshield on the black 2*2 where the normal windshield is. It should look pretty good.
