I've seen some where they cut the windows from a CD cover.

Try TAP plastics, they are one of our sponsors, and they are on this site, under the Buildings

If you work in an organization where they love to produce bound powerpoint presentations, from my experience most - its an addiction, then the front cover is usually clear plastic. After use when they are due to be shredded - a free supply!

TAP Plastics has 2'x4' sheets of Clear Polycarbonate (LEXAN) in very thin sheets. What thickness do you want? Most people use the .010" or .015 or even the .020. I have them all in stock. If you use clear styrene, make sure you keep it out of the sun. Styrene tends to yellow and fog up fairly quickly.

The TAP polycarbonate is far superior to clear styrene, IMO. It's much flatter (and thus looks like glass) and much tougher. And like Russ said, it won't yellow from the sun. Styrene is for indoor modelers.
