May be cellulose comes in clear but I do think that you are referring to 
celluloid which is a plastic material. Speaking of clear material for OT 
models, what about the material that used to come on cigarette pack's? 
(Assuming it still does, I quite in 1979). If I remember right it was 
thin and I would think easily worked.
