Broke mine last night, willing to buy/horsetrade if anyone has an extra one. Is there material there where I can make my own? Thanks-Tom

I don't know what kind of detail is on those windows. (support ribs, rivets, etc.) However any craft store will yield clear plastic sheets, often times in colors as well. Use the original to make a pattern the same size and cut it out. Easy peasy. 

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

I thank you

 

Most welcome. You could also use some thin cardboard, like an index card to make the pattern. Trim it just a bit larger than the windshield area. Then tape it to the inside and lightly trace the frame edges. When you make the window, just be sure to cut it a hair larger than the pattern. Good luck. Let us know how it works out. :)
