go in edit mode, highlight the polygons you wish to be transparent. Go to Mesh> Scripts> Ysflight Face mode.
Change the ZA to say 100+ for a nice canopy press enter and voila perfect canopy. 180 works for me best.
Hope this helps, Dave.

Cockpit model comes seperately right?You have to make the model and move it into position and make the cockpit interior and body one right?

Double face the supports, but don't make the cockpit itself double sided and transparent. It just looks bad.
