    Re: Mylar Film as Artificial Horizon Windows

    Robin:

    In the case of fogging of the mylar windows you mentioned due to temperature difference between outside air and water in the artifical horizon, rubbing a cut onion on the inside of the "mylar window panes" might help eliminate the fogging. I believe it worked with diving masks.

    Otherwise, the plastic side panels have a narrow "shelf" on the inside of each panel, these serving as seats for the glass or colored wind shields supplied with the AH's. Looks like the "frames" you made seat on these shelves. Correct?Also, looks like you used a strip of tape between the upper ends of each frame, as their upper ends don't quite touch each other, yes?

    RSVP.
