Here's the channel version of the chassis. I think I'll keep them printing with the with frame mainly to use as the template for shaping your own glass. Then slip the glass into an angled channel.

I bent some sheet styrene by warming it boiling water, then bending it round a small empty baby food jar. Perfect radius. Then polished the glass with 6000 grit wet dry paper, some semichrome Polish, then buffing with cork. Problem will be fitting it to the non-channeled body. Just glue it. Every time I crash. Or maybe make a wire frame that wraps the top and side and pins into drilled holes?

Here's my own old dirigible body, with a paint job and fin pending completion, along with 2 of the Cobras.
