    I use PARAFILM "M" been using it for years it's takes practice to master it but when you do it's the best thing out there.

    First clean off the canopy with alcohol not soap and water, than sort of warm up a piece of PARAFILM "M" between your hands then strech it gently first with the grain then strech it leagth ways do this a few times till you get as thin as you want it but be carful that you don't tear it as it sometimes will do if streched to thin. then carfully place it over the canopy and pull it tight so there are no wrinkels smooth the first layer down making sure their are no air bubbles then apply a second layer same as the first. use a new X-acto blade and cut to a corner lightly I've left the Parafilm on the canopy for a month or longer after painting and had no problem removing it,I use a tooth pick cut to a chisel point to remove it. practice first try it you'll love it

    With regards to Luftwaffe the size varied according to the aircraft it was used on. I remember seeing a list, but cannot find it.
     
    Once you know the size, this link should enable you to construct letters, balkenkreuz and swastika of correct proportions.

    I have far less knowledge about the English and American standards, but I do have the standard of the various Star-and-Bar variants

    Do you have a vinyl cutter and what software do you plan to use to do this. I've just gotten a cutter and plan to do some work on this - perhaps we can cooperate ?

    Brian, Probably one of the most useful tools I've got is a fingernail drill/file machine that I got off of e-bay I like because you can stall it with your finger slow enough so as not to melt the plastic when your grinding or polishing, cutting brass tubing small parts with cutting wheels, think about it.
